VOTED : To approve the minutes of the December 6,

Chairman Quinn began his report by expressing the continued Chairman's 

interest by the Board of Trustees in the enhancement or de- Report 

velopment to a representative capacity of the intercollegiate 
aihletic programs at the Boston and Amherst campuses. There 
was a consensus and growing interest on the part of the Board 
that whatever courses are taken and whatever the level of

Report 



collegiate athletics was agreed upon, it ought to be in a 
representative capacity. Chairman Quinn requested the President 
and Chancellors to advise the Trustees if a more formal direc- 
tion needs to he pursued in this matter. 

Chairman Quinn reported that the usual procedure for seeking 
applicants for positions had heen followed in the search for a 
Secretary to the Board of Trustees. As a result there was one 
application by Miss Cynthia Rich. The Trustees then considered 
the following motion. 

MOVED: To appoint Miss Cynthia Rich as the 
Administrative Secretary. 

After the motion was seconded, Trustee Sweeney moved that 
the motion be tabled for further consideration. It was then 
moved, seconded and, on roll call, 

VOTED: To table the matter for further 
consideration. 

Chairman Quinn concluded his report by mentioning that 
there had been an earlier meeting with Chancellor Duff concern- 
ing the Trustees relationship with the Board of Regents and its 
Chancellor and "that a desire had been expressed to continue 
these meetings. 

President Knapp gave a brief summary of the Capital Outlay 
budget which in his opinion is the first major step in re- 
building the facilities of the University. The total budget 
was roughly 32.5 million dollars and it is the first Capital 
Outlay budget approved in four years. He stated that he sees 
it as laying the ground work for some major steps for not simply 
the physical plant but academic programs as well. He also 
stated that he was sending to the Trustees a written Legisla- 
tive report on ihe operating budget, the capital outlay budget 
and the amendment to the Building Authority law. Further, he 
stated that this year had been one of the most successful years 
in terms of legislative results. This and the actions concern- 
ing the collective bargaining agreements, in his judgment, set 
the framework which will permit the university to take some of 
the steps forward which are in the long range plan. It is his 
hope that this year will be as successful. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported that the Boston campus was in 
the midst of celebrating its twentieth anniversary, and the 
College of Public and Community Service was celebrating its 
tenth anniversary. Also Robert Coles, a well-known 
psychologist and author, from Harvard will become the first 
distinguished professor. At UMass Boston, staff of the 
University played an important role in preparing the document 
of Boston's financial concerns.

In response to Chairman Ouinn's remarks concerning inter- 
collegiate athletics, Chancellor Corrigan remarked that since 
reorganization there has been a significant increase to 
twenty-two sports teams on the Boston campus. 

Chancellor Duffey informed the Board that the second se- 
mester had begun and based on pre-regis tra tion and paid re- 
gistrants, it was anticipated that the Spring enrollments will 
be the highest in the history of the campus, final figures are 
not available until mid-February. He stated that the high 
spring enrollment has put a greater demand on campus housing, 
but it was anticipated that more room should become available 
due to no-shows and early leaves. 

Since his last report, the campus has received several 
gifts and was awarded grants including $297,000 from the Fxxon 
Fducational Foundation, which allows the University to purchase 
hardware at a substantial discount as a participant in Digi- 
tal's PACE program ^ Partners for the Advancement of Computers) 
and a mainframe and ten terminals from IBM amounting to 2.2 
million dollars. An alumnus Palph O'Brien, Chairman of Mohawk 
Data, contributed a half million dollars of equipment to the 
Management School. He also announced the joint award of the 
Ford High Polymer Physics Prize of the American Physics Society 
to two members at the University for their pioneering research 
in the area.

Chancellor Duffey mentioned that he participated in an 
exhibition as part of Black History Month at the State House in 
Doric Hall of the papers of ¥. F, Dubois. It is the campuses' 
privilege to have custody of these papers. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported chat the campus had the same 
number of admissions applications as last year. This year's 
first year class for the first time in the history of the 
school got through all of their classes without a single member 
having an academic failure in any subject. It was announced 
that the search process for a Dean of the Graduate Nursing 
School is proceeding well and it was expected that at the April 
meeting an announcement will be made with regard to that 
position. 

Chancellor Tranquada announced with pleasure awards, 
Fellowships, and appointments to National Foundations recently 
given to members of the Medical School. 

Trustee Knowles then gave the report of the January 25, 
1984 meeting of the Committee on Budget and financial Affairs. 
Trustees Knowles and Kurzman briefly reviewed and answered 
questions about the projects within the purview of the Building 
Authority as well as the financing. It was then moved,

tinuing Education Graduation List at 
th University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst contained in Doc. T84-001, 
subject to the completion of all 
requirements as certified by the 
Recorder of the campus. 

The last item discussed was the annual report on Admissions 
and Student Affairs. Trustee Troy reported that all institu- 
tions are concerned about the problem of shrinking numbers of 
high school graduates. It was estimated that over the next 
ten years there will be a forty percent decrease in Massachu- 
setts and the Northeast. So far at the Boston and Amherst 
campuses comparing 1982 applications to those of 1983 at Am- 
herst it went from 13,744 to 16,819 and at Boston from 2,604 to 
3,252. At Amherst, however, there still exists the problem of 
finding places for students in high demand areas such as man- 
agement, computer science and engineering. Students 
wishing to enter those fields have to seek alternate majors and 
some do not enter when they cannot find a place in the field 
that interests them the most. This effects transfer applicants 
especially because the University draws the largest number of 
transfer students of any institution in New England. The 
University minority enrollment has increased significantly 
especially at Amherst and out-of-state applications remain 
high. At Worcester there is a slight falling off in 
applications and that is part of the national trend. The edu- 
cational preparation of students has also improved. The com- 



-8-

bined SAT scores are up three points at Boston and 20 points at 
Amherst. This is above the national average as well as above 
the recently recommended status of the Board of Regents. 

There has been an increase in federal and state funding for 
financial aid but that is not as rosy as it sounds. For ex- 
ample, on the federal level, grant money is often replaced with 
loan money, a stricter needs test is applied, and the Pell 
grants now demand stricter guidelines. At Amherst, Pell grants 
were cut back and 1360 fewer students were eligible for the 
grants. At Boston, our ability to meet student need has de- 
creased from seventy percent of need to fifty percent in FY 
1983* There is a problem and if it is not resolved through 
finding other sources to make up for these declines for funding 
the admissions and enrollment picture will be effected later. 

The next item of business was the report of the Executive 
Committee, the items of the Executive Committee were taken by 
the Board as a Committee of the Whole. 



It was moved , seconded and 

VOTED; To approve the minutes of the 

November 16, and Pec ember 21, 1983 
meetings of the Hospital Management 
Board at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Worcester. (Poc. T84-005) 

Chairman Quinn asked for a motion to go into Executive 
Session to discuss the awarding of Honorary Pegrees, Collective 
Bargaining agreements, and the compensation package for non-unit

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chairman Quinn; Trustees 
Knowles, Robsham and Troy; Ms. Rich, Secretary, and Mr. Miller, 
Deputy Secretary 

University Administration: President Knapp ; Ms. Katz, Associate 
Counsel; Mr. Kelley, Associate Vice President for Human 
Resources; Mr. MacArthur, Vice President for Management and

Mr. Searson, General Counsel; Mr. Saudek, Budget Director; Mr. 
Solomon, Executive Assistant to the President. 

UM /Amherst : Chancellor Duffey 

UM /Boston : Chancellor Corrigan 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada, Ms. Wyatt, Vice Chancellor 
and Hospital Director. 

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:30 p.m. 

The first item on the agenda was the Hospital Management 
Board minutes. There was a brief discussion of item four in the 
January 18 minutes concerning the recommendation that at future 
contract negotiations with the MNA the University of 
Massachusetts be represented by legal counsel. The concern 
raised was that this could be interpreted as outside counsel. 
The consensus was that this recommendation be taken by the 
Committee as advisory in determining its future position in 
negotiations. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve 
the minutes of the January 18, 1984 
meeting of the Hospital Management 
Board, with the exception of Item 
Item 3 of said minutes and the 
minutes of the February 15, 1984 
meeting. (Doc. T84-020) 

Chancellor Tranquada briefly outlined the formation of a 
private, non-profit and tax-exempt corporation to serve as a 
holding company to support the University Hospital. Ms. Wyatt 
explained that to maintain economic viability it was essential 



EXECUTIVE 

3/19/84 to establish a subsidiary which would serve as a holding company 
for a system of non-profit and for-profit corporations organized 
to pursue new ventures including but not limited to Health 

Maintenance Organizations, Surgical Day Care Centers, and 

Preferred Provider Organizations. The objectives of the 
formation of the new corporation are to protect and develop the 
existing referral patient bases and to diversify the revenue 
sources. Chancellor Tranquada stated that there is pending 
legislation which if approved would require any reorganization

At the request of Chancellor Tranquada, the agenda items 
for UM/Worcester were dealt with first by the Committee. 
Chancellor Tranquada gave a brief history of the events leading 
to the recommended Proposal for Extension of Tenure 
Probationary Period. The present tenure policy requires a six 
year probationary period at the end of which a faculty member 
must meet the three criteria of teaching, scholarly activity 
and service by exhibiting excellence in two of the criteria and 
strength in one. The recommended proposal would extend the 
probationary period by two years if the faculty member has met 
two of the three criteria and if there exists a high 
probability that the third criteria will be met within the two 
years. At the end of the two year probationary period, a 
decision for or against the award of tenure would be made based 
on a review of all three criteria. The primary reason given 
for the proposal was the limited independent grant support 
available to allow the faculty members to achieve the criteria 
of scholarly research. Ms. Schmidt felt that the proposal 
should also be extended to UM/Boston and UM/Amherst since 
similar concerns existed at the other two campuses. 

President Knapp indicated that the Medical Center operates 
under a different set of personnel policies and to extend the 
proposal to the other campuses would not be appropriate.

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS 

April 4, 1984; 1:30 p.m.

Boston, Massachusetts 



ATTENDANCE: Commit tee and Committee Staff : Chairman Troy; Trustees Allen, 
Carlin and Robsham, Ms. Rich, Secretary 

Members Absent: Trustee Caruso 

University Administration: Dr. Smith, Vice President for 
Academic Affairs, 

UM/Boston: Dr. Greene, Provost 

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 1:35 p.m. 

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a tenure 
recommendation at the Boston campus which had been tabled at the 
March 21, 1984 Committee meeting pending further information. 

Dr. Smith provided the Committee with a written review of 
the University Policy on the requirement of Terminal degrees 
specifically he cited Document T76-081. In response to the 
Committee's inquiry, Provost Greene supplied information 
concerning the individual's original appointment. His review 
revealed that "the circumstances surrounding the appointment and 
subsequent reappointments indicate the the CPCS Dean's Office 
and the Provost's Office were satisified at the time that her 
credentials met the test of equivalent professional experience. 
In view of that in the intervening years she was never warned or 
even encouraged to pursue the Ph.D., simple fairness to her 
argues for the award of tenure on the basis of a strong, solid 
record of achievement since her initial appointment." 

Provost Greene stated that presently there are three 
individuals in the College who are within the probationary 
period, who do not possess but are pursuing terminal degrees. 
Furthermore, in the past two years there were five members of 
the College who were candidates for terminal degrees, who did not 
complete their work, and who have since resigned. He concluded 
by stating that there has been a considerable change in the past 
practice of awarding tenure. 

Based on the facts presented, it was then agreed that the 
individual should be included on the list of tenure appointments 
to be presented to the Board.

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:10 p.m.. The 
first item on the agenda was the Renovations of the Curry Hicks 
Cage. Mr. Bischoff, Dean of the School of Physical Education 
introduced Mr. Casendino from the firm of Childs Bertman Tsec- 
kares and Casendino, Inc. who designed the renovations to the 
Cage. The Curry Hicks Cage is the largest structure at Amherst

to the Cage focus on upgrading and improving the facility 
including its egress, adding new and retractable seating, locker 
rooms, lavatories and handicapped accommodations , insulating the 
roof for heating and acoustic purposes, and building an entrance 
to the facility. The estimated cost of the renovations range 
from 2.2 to 2.3 million dollars.

the Building Authority Documents were on schedule. The bonds 
would be available in April, and the money would be in hand by 
May. He also noted that estimated cost of the projects were 
less than originally anticipated and

BFA the debt service was caning in at 5.3 million for Amherst and 
3/28/84 1.7 million for Worcester. Therefore, the fees would be in line

lease agreement from the Trustees to the Building Authority, the 

termination of existing leases for certain parcels of land at 

Amherst and Worcester, the authorization of an Officer of 

Trustees to sign the bonds pledging the guaranty of the 

Commonwealth, and the Trustees approval of an aggregate amount 

for FY 1985 Amherst fee revenues applicable to pay debt service 

plus other building authority costs. Trustee Kurzman stated 

that there was still a considerable amount of work to be done. 

He complimented and recognized the long and hard work done by 

individuals on behalf of the Committee. It was, in his opinion, 

the singular most important thing for the University in recent 

memory. Without further discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

RESOLVED; To recommend to the Board that 
the Chairman, Vice Chairman and 
Administrative Secretary of the 
Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts be and each such

VOTED; To recommend that the Board approve

With reference to the Boston campus, Trustee Reeves asked 
that the Committee table until the April 4, 1984 meeting its 
vote on the Student Activities portion of the FY' 85 Revenue 
Based Trust Fund Budget. The reason given for the request was 
that the student members of the University Assembly were (* 

planning to meet prior to April 4, 1984 and would like an 
opportunity to review the proposed budget. 

The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs indicated that 
student input was achieved through the mechanism outlined in the 
Governance Document, and that the Student Activities Trust Fund 
is within the purview of the Student Activities Committee. 
Furthermore, the Student Activities Committee participated fully 
in an analysis of the Trust Fund last year and the generation of 
the general spending categories. The procedure mentioned by 
Trustee Reeves would consist of a review of the estimated 
revenues and estimated expenditures which were before the 
Committee. 

Chancellor Corrigan stated that the constitution document 
clearly indicates that the Student Activities Committee's main 
purpose is the review, approval and spending plan for Student 
Activities. The Assembly is a separate group and once a year 
the student members of the Assembly are asked to review the 
final budget for the Student Activities Committee in order to 
advise the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

of the FY '85 Revenue Based Trust Fund Budget and Fee Adjustments 
at UM/Boston contained in Doc. T84-019A until April 4, 1984.

It was then 3/28/84 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board approve 
the FY' 85 Revenue Based Budget and 
Fee Adjustments of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester contained 
in Doc. T84-019B. 

The next item on the agenda was the Supplemental Health 
Benefits Plan at UM/Amherst. Dr. Craft, Director of Health 
Services explained that the request requires all students at 
UM/Amherst to have some major medical or hospitalization 
coverage. The proposed mechanism would be through a mandatory 
low cost Supplemental Health Insurance Plan. It was 
estimated that this would affect seven to ten percent of the 
students who currently have no coverage. The requirement may be 
waived for students who document comparable coverage through 
some other medical insurance. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend to the Board that a 
Supplemental Health Benefits Plan 
fee in the amount of $120 be 
established for all students at the 
University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst as part of the Student 
Healtn Trust Fund except for those 
students who substantiate coverage 
under some other medical plan or 
insurance policy providing 
comparable benefits, as set forth in 
Doc. T84-022. 

The Committee then considered the Massachusetts College 
Student Loan Authority Program. Mr. MacArthur stated that the 
Authority was in existence to provide another avenue of loans to 
families. It presents an opportunity for a parent to borrow on 
an annual basis up to seventy-five percent of the total cost of 
board and tuition. The loan must be repaid within fifteen years 
and the current interest rate reported was 11 1/4 %. There are 
currently thirteen institutions participating in the program. 

The proposed recommendation was for the University to become 
a participant in the program at the rate of $500,000 in loan 
value for a three year period. The cost to the University each 
year would be $40,000 of which $20,000 would be for the 
Authority to underwrite its cost and $20,000 would be reserved 
with the University Treasurer for defaults on the balance of 
loans. President Knapp asked that the record indicate that at 
the outset of the program there was a question whether public 
institutions would be able to participate. It was largely 
through the efforts of Jan Napora of the President's Office and 
the interest of Evelyn Murphy's Office that the University was 
able to participate and give resources to people who otherwise 
would not be able to afford the cost of education.

3/28/84 



A discussion ensued on the program's affect on the taxpayer 
and what the average family income would be of those who would 
take advantage of the program. Mr. Searson noted that this was 
the second occasion a request had been made to pledge trust fund 
interest, and this may require the establishment of a reserve. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend to the Board that the 
President be and hereby is 
authorized on behalf of the 
University to participate in the 
Massachusetts Student Loan Authority 
Program in an amount not to exceed 
$500,000 annually, for a period of 
three years, as more fully described 
in Doc. T84-034; further, that 
$40,000 be allocated from the 
Trustee Reserve for administrative 
costs and a default reserve related 
to the first year of the program's 
operation; and further, that the 
President be and hereby is 
authorized to enter into any 
agreements relative thereto and to 
pledge the credit of Trust Fund 
interest in order to fulfill any 
obligations thereunder. 

Trustees Reeves asked to be recorded as opposed. 

Representatives of the three campuses were asked to describe 
the Mid -Year Reviews and Fund Transfers. All three campuses 
were within their total funds and were requesting modest 
transfers. At the Boston campus the utility (08) account may 
require a later review this fiscal year. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board approve 
the FY84 Mid-Year Budget Review and 
inter subsidiary fund transfers 
contained in Doc T84-032. 

The Committee then considered personnel actions at the 
Amherst and Boston campuses. After brief discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board approve 
the personnel action for E. Bruce 
MacDougall, Dean of the College of 
Food and Natural Resources at 
Director of the Massachusetts 
Cooperative Extension Service, 
University of Massachusetts at 4L 

Amherst, contained in Doc. T84-029,

and, 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve 
the personnel action for Herbert 
Ginsburg, Director of the Institute 
for Learning and Teaching, 
University of Massachusetts at 
Boston contained in Doc. T84-030, 
Addendum I. 

The next item on the agenda was the Equipment Fee for 
Engineering students. Chairman Knowles said that the 
Engineering and Science Departments have been criticized during 
accreditation visits for the condition of the facilities. 
During the last four to five years the state equipment account 
has been at a standstill and not allowed the University to 
maintain its instructional equipment. The proposal recommends 
that the engineering students be assessed a fee of $100 per 
seme ster/$ 200 annually to be used solely for equipment purchases 
and maintaining the School of Engineering. Further, the 
proposal suggests the fee be utilized for a four year period. 
After two years the use of the funds must be reviewed by the 
Board and, if its continued beyond 1988, the Board must 
reauthorize the fee. It was noted that it is more expensive to 
educate engineering students because of such factors as 
student/faculty ratio, the amount of equipment required, the 
computer literacy, and the design automation. 

Concerns were raised by Trustees Kurzman and Sweeney about 
whether the amount of the fee would remain constant, whether it 
was expected to escalate, the precedent which would be 
established, and the potential legislative implications. 

In conclusion, it was the sense of the Committee that it 
would like to have the opportunity to review other options in 
order to find the best possible mechanism. 

Trustee Sweeney proposed a Transfer of $60,000 from the 
Trustee Reserve Account for the purpose of creating the Troy 
Reading Room at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. It 
was agreed by the Committee that the item should be included on 
the agenda for the April 4, 1984 Board meeting. 

The meeting adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

The Board considered and approved the minutes of the 
February 1, 1984 meeting as written. It was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the 

February 1, 1984 Board of Trustees 
meeting . 

Chairman Quinn began his report by congratulating the Boston 
campus for winning first prize for its outstanding exhibit at 
the Massachusetts Horticultural Society Flower Show. On behalf 
of the members of the Board, Chairman Quinn expressed the 
Board's sympathy and condolence to Trustee Allen on the loss of 
her mother. 

Chairman Quinn reported that in H. 5600, the FY' 85 
Legislative budget, the University of Massachusetts was 
favorably considered by the House Ways and Means Committee. He 
noted, however, that some aspects of the budget need further 
enhancement. 



President Knapp stated that the actions relating to the 
B ^ T Building Authority Docunents mark the single most strategic 

4/4/84 development in the physical plant development in the past 

fifteen years. In the labor relations areas, he commented that 
funding for the classified employees covered under Coalitions I 
and II has been appropriated, the faculty contract has been 
signed by Chancellor Duff and is being transmitted to the Office 
of Employee Relations and the Governor, and acceptance from the 
Massachusetts Nurses Association is pending on the final draft 
of the new agreement. He concluded his report by stating that 
the Boston and Amherst campuses are in the process of program 
reviews in several areas as well as an accreditation visit at 
the Engineering School at Amherst. The reports of the visiting 
teams state they are impressed by the quality of faculty and 
programs offered, distressed by the quality of the facilities at 
Amherst, and concerned about the equipment for the programs at 
both Boston and Amherst. These statements reiterate the 
University's requests through the budget process and long range 
plan for additional support for the rehabilitation of facilities 
and upgrading the volume and quality of equipment for teaching 
purposes at the three campuses. 

Chancellor Corrigan mentioned that on April 26 there will be 
the unveiling of the John Ryan portrait and the awarding of the 
University Medal. A similar ceremoney for Francis Broderick, 
the second Chancellor of the campus, will be held on April 9. 
Chancellor Corrigan announced that U/Mass Boston ranked 118th 
out of 345 institutions on the William Lowell Putnam National 
Mathematical competition, and out of 2,000 participating 
students a Boston student ranked 107. This achievement notes 
the quality of the mathematics program and the students admitted 
to the program. 

Chancellor Duffey introduced the Student Trustee -elect, 
James Keller. He announced that the National Science Foundation 
recently awarded the Presidential Young Investigators Citations 
at the White House. Two hundred awards were given this year: 
five at MIT, four at the Amherst campus, and one to an 
individual recently appointed to join the Amherst campus in the 
Fall. The awards amount to $500,000 over a five year period and 
are to enable young scientists to begin their research. In 
closing, he referred to the Business and Economy section of Time 
Magazine of two weeks ago. The article is about the Revival of 
Manufacturing and states that at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, two- thirds of the new Engineering faculty are in 
manufacturing, and enrollment in these courses has risen fifty 
percent in the last two years. He noted that in light of the 
concern in the Commonwealth for traditional industries and the 
revival of manufacturing, this was a welcomed acknowledgement. 
Also noted was the March 16th issue of Forbes Magazine which 
featured a cover story on alumnus Jack Welch and an inside story 
on Joe Flavin of Singer

Chancellor Tranquada reported the Campus received its formal 
notification of the award of a six year accreditation. He gave 
an update on the progress of the New England Life Flight, the 
Emergency Helicopter Evacuation Service. From July 1st through B ^ T / 

March 15th, 340 flights have been made, 28% were trauma flights, 4/4/84 

14% were out of State to New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, 
Rhode Island and Maine, and 95% were west of Route 128. In the 
area of student admission, the Medical School has remained 
constant even during a period when nationally there has been a 
decrease. 

Trustee Troy gave the report of the March 21, 1984 Committee 
on Academic and Student Affairs. The first item considered was

records of the candidates for tenure in the three areas of 
scholarship, teaching, and service. It was moved, seconded, and

be of immense service to many of the coastal harbors in the 
Commonwealth.

probationary period would be extended by two years if the 
faculty member had met two of the three criteria and if there 
exists a high probability that the third criteria will be met 
within the two years. At the end of the two year probationary 
period, a decision for or against the award of tenure would be 
made based on a review of all three criteria. Without

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:21 p.m. 
Chairman Quinn welcomed Mrs. Thalia Zervas to her first Board 
meeting as a Trustee and announced Mr. Knowles' reappointment. 

The first item on the agenda was the Long Range Plan . 
President Knapp gave a synopsis of the Progress Report. 
Following a brief discussion about space on the Boston campus, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the Planning Process 
Report of the Five Year Plan, 
Opportunities for Quality (Doc. 
T83-086, approved by the Board 
October 5, 1983) contained in Doc. 
T83-086, Addendum I; further, to 
authorize the President to forward 
said report to the Board of Regents. 

Trustee Troy presented the Report of the Evaluation 
Committee. Since he last reported, two elements were added. 
The Evaluation Committee, appointed by the Chairman, has the 



1 



5/16/85 



__ option of seeking the assistance of an outside expert in the 

(^Decial) evaluation of the President. The second element was the 
£/t£/qi; inclusion of a section outlining the procedure for the 

evaluation of Vice Presidents in the President's Office. The 
policy provides a description of what is involved in the various 
evaluations, sets forth the timeframe when the evaluations 
should occur, who conducts the evaluation and who has access to 
the document. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To approve and adopt the Statement 
Evaluation of Senior Administrators 
set forth in Doc. T84-036. 

The next matter for consideration was the Report of the 
Development and Review Committee. The report outlined what had 
transpired since the Committee was established and focused on 
four areas: alumni relations, the Foundation, the creation of a 
Standing Committee on the Board of Trustees, and Development 
directions and goals to be determined by the campuses. 

The first recommendation presented by Judge Sweeney was to 
endorse the concept of an All-University Alumni to encourage 
alumni to think of the University as a state-wide multi-campus 
system. To achieve this a committee would be established 
consisting of three sitting Alumni Association Presidents, three 
Campus Directors of Alumni Relations and Activities, and the 
three campus Directors and/or Vice Chancellors of Development. 
Trustee Troy indicated his thoughts that alumni of a particular 
campus would render his/her enthusiasm and loyalities there and 
did not want to see this established as a major priority of 
development. Trustee Knowles concurred with those sentiments. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To establish a working study 

committee which shall have as its 
purpose the fostering of the concept 
of University-wide alumni, all as 
set forth in Doc. T84-044, Section 
IIA. 

Trustee Troy is recorded as abstaining. 

The second section of the report was the establishment of a 
standing committee. The Committee would anticipate problems, 
bring a better interest and expertise to the Board in the areas 
of development and university relations. Trustee Sweeney stated 
that not to establish a committee puts a burden on existing 
committees to piecemeal questions which might have long term 
importance to the University. 

Trustee Robsham expressed his concern about the 
proliferation of Committees and suggested the alternative of a 
sub-comittee to deal with this issue. It was moved, seconded 
and 



-2- 



RESOLVED; That the Board looks with favor 

on the establishment of a g^ 

University Relations and (Special) 

Development Committee as a 5/16/84 

standing Committee of the Board; 

the Committee will have within 

its purview the University 

relations and development, all as 

set forth in Doc T84-044, IIB; 

subject to finalization by a 

By-Law change in accord with 

conditions and rules governing 

such By-Law amendments. 

The next section discussed was the Foundation and the 
recommendation that a Committee be established to report back 
within a year with suggestions for achieving a more meaningful 
Foundation. President Knapp stated that there is group within 
the University that is currently working with the Director of 
the Foundation on the inter-relationship between the Foundation 
and the various campus development efforts . The University 
Foundation is an autonomous independent entity and there is 
Board membership via the Chairman of the Board. President Knapp 
will obtain the plan on how the Foundation would function in the 
future and report back to the Board. It was agreed to table 
this item. 

The next part of the report focused on providing sustenance 
by way of a transfer of funds for the Development Offices to 
succeed. Deirdre Ling, Vice Chancellor of Relations and 
Development and Dallas Darland, Director of Development and 
Alumni Affairs from UM/Amherst gave highlights of their proposal 
in fundraising activities. After a lengthy discussion of the 
goals to be reached, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the Long-Range Plan for 

the Office of Development and Alumni 
Affairs at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst contained 
in Doc. T84-044, Section IIDl. 

Further, 

To authorize the President to 
transfer $585,169 from trust fund 
interest, disbursed over a three 
year period, for implementation of 
said plan. (Doc. T84-044, IIDl) 

Trustee Carlin voted against the motion. 

Robert Palmer, Vice Chancellor for University Relations and 
Development briefly reported on the UM/Boston proposal. It was 
moved, seconded and

VOTED; To approve the plan for University 

^° Relations and Development in Doc. 

i^?f;i. ) T84-044, Section IID2.

transfer $165,628 over a period of 

two years, for the implementation of 

said plan. (Doc. T84-044, Section 

IID2) 

Trustee Carlin voted against the motion. 

The next section in the report dealt with Policy Guidelines 
for Sponsored Programs. The amendments recommended were to open 
the process to ensure coordination between the Grants and 
Contract Office and the Development Office in the submission of 
grants and contract proposals and to allow the Chancellor to 
designate the signatory authority. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To amend the Policy Guidelines for 
Sponsored Programs (Doc T81-051) by 
striking Item 4, page 4, and 
substituting therefore: 

4. The OGCA Directors will work 
directly with the Development 
officers to coordinate the 
submission of proposals and 
applications to funding agencies for 
the entire institution. The OGCA 
Directors, Development officers, and 
Controllers are to serve as the only 
points of contact with funding 
agencies for administrative and 
financial matters. 

Further , 

And by adding the following to page 4 

8. The new guidelines provide that only 
the Chancellors or their designees 
shall sign the cover page of all 
applications and proposals whether 
an institutional authority is 
required by the proposal sponsor or 
not. (Doc. T84-044, Section IID5) 

The last section of the report was the President's Office 
and dealt with the University Wide Development Council. It was 
moved, seconded and 



♦

VOTED: To establish a University wide 

Development Council as described in 

Doc. T84-044, Section IID4. BoT 

(Special) 

President Knapp reported on the two year campus process 5/16/84 
which led to the Student Government Association Constitution. 
He urged, and it was agreed, that the document be referred to 
the Academic and Student Affairs Committee so that there could 
be a comprehensive legal review. 

The next matter for consideration was the Appointment of 
Richard D. O'Brien. Chancellor Duffey reviewed his experience 
and qualifications for the position. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To concur along with the President 

in the Appointment by the Chancellor 
of Richard D. O'Brien as Executive 
Vice Chancellor and Provost at the 
University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst. (Doc. T84-045) 

The Chairman noted that with reference to the Personnel 
Action for Richard D. O'Brien that he was concerned about moving 
out-of -scale. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the personnel action for 
Richard O'Brien contained in Doc. 
T84-045, Addendum I. 

Trustee Reeves gave the Report of the Affirmative Action 
Review Committee. In the interest of brevity, he read the last 
two pages of the report for the record. It was moved, seconded 
and 

RESOLVED: The Board of Trustees hereby 
endorses the concept of the 
establishment of a Committee on 
Affirmative Action that will 
provide the necessary direction 
and impetus to affirmative action 
efforts throughout the University 
of Massachusetts and which will 
be subject to a By-Law change at 
a later date under the 
appropriate conditions. 

The Resolution on Religious Discrimination was addressed by 
Trustee Kurzman. As a result of recent incidents of 
anti-semitism on the Amherst campus, he presented a resolution. 
He stated that while prejudice is a state of mind which probably 
camot be acted upon discrimination is an act that can be. 
Hopefully and eventually through education people's attitudes 
will change. It was moved, seconded and 



-5- 



RESOLVED: In light of the fact that 

sporadic but persistent problems 
g^ of anti-semitism continue to 

(Special) surface on the U-Mass Amherst 

5/16/84 campus and despite the fact that 



the present administration of 

this University is creatively f 

firmly confronting the problem, 

we believe it to be necessary to 

make clear that anti-semitism as 

well as racial and ethnic 

bigotry is deemed incompatible 

with the most fundamental 

purposes, goals and 

responsibilities of this 

institution. 

In keeping with the University's 

commitment to public higher 

education of superior quality* 

the Board of Trustees of the 

University of Massachusetts 

reaffirms the principle that 

conduct by faculty, staff, 

students, or administration 

based upon stereotyping or 

prejudice which demeans or harms 

individuals or groups has no 

place in a community of 

learning. Discrimination, 

harrassment or interference with 

the enjoyment of any rights and A 

principles provided to all 

students motivated by racial, 

ethnic or religious bigotry will 

not be tolerated. Rather, the 

members of this University 

should strive to understand the 

value of the differences among 

us so as to remove barriers or 

mere misunderstanding and 

ignorance which divide us. Our 

responsibility goes beyond legal 

strictures against 

di scr iminat ion . 

The Board of Trustees commends 
the recent efforts of 
individuals campuses to provide 
relevant educational programs 
and to refine mechanisms for the 
redress of greivances. At this 
time, we request that each 



-6- 



campus go further to review, 

revise as necessary, or create BoT 

those policies, procedures and (Special) 

programs which establish 5/16/84 

expectations for appropriate 

faculty, staff, student and 

administrative conduct. 

Trustee Kurzman spoke on the need for a Hotel Management 
Course at the Boston campus. He requested a timetable to be 
presented in the near future of how this program can be enacted. 

The next item for consideration was the Tuition Resolution. 
Trustee Sweeney presented the item and moved the adoption of the 
resolution. After a discussion of the Regents 1 action, pending 
legislation and the availability of tuition waivers, Trustee 
Carlin expressed his concern about the language of the 
resolution and suggested that another resolution be drafted or 
this one defeated. At the conclusion of the discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To refer the Tuition Resolution to 
the Executive Committee for further 
consideration. 

Trustee Sweeney voted against the motion. 

Chairman Quinn asked that the Board endorse the following 
resolutions which he presented to out-going Trustees Allen and 
Reeves. It was moved, seconded and 

WHEREAS, Charlene Allen was 
elected by her peers at the 
University of Massachusetts to

Legislature that it does not look with favor on any tuition 
increase. After a lengthly discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and

UM/Boston: Chancellor Corrigan 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada and Ms. Wyatt, Vice 
Chancellor and Hospital Director 

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. 

At the request of Chancellor Duffey, the agenda items for 
UM/Amherst were dealt with first starting with the Equipment Fee 
for Engineering Students . The proposal established a $100 per 
semester fee assessed to engineering graduate and undergraduate 
students. Recent visiting and accrediting committees cited the 
School of Engineering with the need to improve its laboratory 
facilities. Two thirds of the funds generated will be used to 
modernize the laboratory facilities and one third will be for 
computer maintenance. Other institutions which have experienced 
similar problems and instituted fees include the University of 
Lowell, the University of Michigan, and the University of 
Missouri. 

There was seme discussion about the expectation of future 
state funding in the equipment account and the need for an 
annual review of the fee. In response to a query regarding 
student reaction, Chancellor Duffey said the Engineering 
students proposed that the fee be $50 per semester and be 
administered by a student/faculty committee. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board 

establish, for the academic years, 



) 



1984-85 through 1987-88, the

Amherst, which fund shall have as 
its purpose the purchase and 
maintenance of equipment in the 
School of Engineering; the fund 
shall consist of a fee of $100 per 
semester, charged to undergraduate 
and graduate students majoring in 
Engineering; said fee shall be 
reviewed on an annual basis. (Doc. 
T84-043) 

The next item discussed was Modification to Tuition Waiver 
Policies. The proposed amendments allow up to twenty-five 
waivers at the Amherst campus to be granted to out-of-state 
students demonstrating exceptional athletic talent and increase 
the number of tuition waivers for exceptionally talented 
students from 60 to 100 for the Amherst Campus. It was moved, 
seconded and

$100 per semester could not be borne by the students. Mr. 
Kurzman discussed mixed financing and stressed the need for a 
definitive and attainable plan.

5/30/84 The next item was the Postponement of Sabbatical Leave 

Requirement for one semester for Michael Doherty at UM/Amherst 
in order that he may complete his manuscript. Without

and to grant him a leave without pay

26, 1985. (Doc. T84-058) 

The Hotel and Restaurant Administration Program was 
discussed. Chancellor Corrigan stated that in response to what 
was happening in the hotel and restaurant community he felt 
there was a need for a program. The Boston campus was not 
inclined to proceed in the direction of an instantaneous four 
year program because of the cost and the lengthy process 
involved in program approval. The liklihood of students taking 
two years in Boston and continuing at Amherst to finish is moot 
unless there exists financial support. He suggested that a 
useful way to proceed would be to start under the umbrella of 
the Amherst program. The issues raised were whether there was a 
need for the program at Boston and secondly how the program 
would get started. 

Trustee Kurzman spoke to the immediacy of a program located 
in Boston and the areas which could be addressed such as 
marketing, purchasing, salesmanship, and front office 
management. He was interested in whether or not an extension of 
the Amherst program in Boston could be accomplished. In 
response, Chancellor Duffey spoke of the capital investment in 
terms of lab cost and hiring faculty and said the decision to 
start a program must be made very carefully particularly in 
light of the tenure system. Also, the program approval is 
delayed while the Board of Regents weigh whether the private 
sector can do it better or if the program would be in 
competition with the private sector. Furthermore, the problem 
at Amherst is that in order to expand the program resources must 
be reallocated. That requires reshaping the campus to hire more 
faculty He stated that he did not think it was possible to take 
the present program at Amherst and expand it without hiring more 
faculty. 

President Knapp responded that there was a good possibility 
of constructing a program on the Boston campus initially with 
the Amherst campus supervising the instruction of the curriculum 
and hiring faculty but the lack of financial resources would 
still exist. The question raised was whether the resources 
would come from a reallocation of resources on campus or from a 
new appropriation. Chancellor Duffey said that if the resources 

-4- 






J 



were available there would be no problem with expanding the 
program. 

Currently there are 156 four year programs and over 200 two 
year programs including eight in Massachusetts. Graduates from 
four year institutions seek management positions with the hope 
of corporate and general management positions. The two year 
graduates generally enter at the supervisory level and move into 
the management level. 

Alternative ideas explored including tying the program in 
with a specific area so that a graduate would have a degree in 
that area but an intensity in hotel courses and awarding a minor 
concentration 

At the conclusion of the discussion the Committee asked that 
no later than the September committee meeting Chancellor Corrigan 
return with a fuller analysis of the job demand in the market 
place, a model of a four year program at the Boston campus 
totally under the jurisdi cation of the Boston campus, and a 
model of an extension of the program from the Amherst campus. 

The next item was the Establishment of the Master of Science 
in Biotechnology and Biomedical Science. Provost Greene 
presented the program. The program is designed to train 
students in the theory of lab techniques in biotechnology and 
biomedical science. It has an intensive training in lab skills 
with emphasis on computer applications to biotechnology and 
there is an internship component with biotechnology industrial 
and research organizatons in the greater Boston area. It is 
based in part on current personnel but additional resources will 
be needed. It was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board 
establish, subject to the 
concurrence of the Board of Regents, 
a Master of Science Degree Program 
in Biotechnology and Biomedical 
Science at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, as set 
forth in Doc. T84-057. 

The Undergraduate Program Review at UM/ Amherst was briefly 
discussed. The program review gave an affirmative view in terms 
of quality of faculty and basic curricula on each of the 
programs on the Amherst campus. Certain suggestions are given 
in the full report which would suggest some modification and 
different courses. Generally it was an affirmative evaluation 
with the overriding reservation that the facilities and 
equipment across the board ranged from appauling to 
substandard. This, however, has been stated in every budget 
request for the last three years.

. . Trustee Carlin suggested that the document might become a 

catalyst to develop a consensus of the Board toward what the 

capital needs might be. 

The next item discussed was Modification to Tuition Waiver 
Policies . The proposed amendments allow up to twenty-five 
waivers at the Amherst campus to be granted to out-of-state 
students demonstrating exceptional athletic talent and increase 
the number of tuition waivers for exceptionally talented 
students from 60 to 100 for the Amherst Campus. It was moved,

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:15 p.m. The 
Board then considered and approved the minutes of the April 4, 
1984 meeting as written. Without discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the April 
4, 1984 Board of Trustees meeting. 

Chairman Quinn congratulated the Chancellors on the success- 
ful Commencement Exercises. He welcomed the two new Student 
Trustees, Adrian Gomes from UM/Boston and James Keller from UM/- 
Amherst . 

President Knapp reported that there were approximately 6,800 
degrees granted at the Graduation Ceremonies. He then reviewed 
the progress of the FY' 85 Budget. House 5858 provided for fund- 
ing for the University beyond what was first reported by the 
House Ways and Means Committee and included operating funds of 
roughly 3.5 million for the Amherst and Boston campuses, three 
additional specials related to the Boston campus and additional 
funds for cooperative extension through the Amherst 



) 



campus. The total is in excess of 4 million. The next princi- 
pal concern was the action required by the Senate which was ex- 
pected to be finished by at least by July 6. He gave an update 
on the status of the funding of various collective bargaining 
agreements. 

Chancellor Duffey reported on the admissions situation at 
the Amherst campus. He stated that to date there were 4,378 
paid acceptances of admission for the freshman class this fall 
and the academic profile of the freshman class and minority en- 
rollment continues to improve. He mentioned that the Amherst 
campus recently hosted a conference on Technology Transfer in- 
volving fifty major corporations and eleven New England Research 
Universities. Each campus presented its areas of research 
strength and discussed with the corporations interest in parti- 
cular research and technology transfer. He concluded his re- 
marks with the announcement that the Pillsbury Company last 
month awarded the University funds to establish an annual $1,000 
scholarship in honor of Joseph R. Perrozzi a 1954 Food Science 
major graduate who died last August. He served as Director of 
Technology Development at Pillsbury where he supervised the de- 
velopment of several successful products including the Angel 
Food Cake mix. The Scholarship will be awarded to a student in 
Food Science. 

Trustee Robsham inquired as to the availability of data on 
comparative financial capacity of the incoming class. His con- 
cern was that students with perhaps greater financial capacity 
and academic ability are accepted over students with lesser fi- 
nancial capacity. Chancellor Duffey stated a comparative study 
and profile for the last few years will be completed and copies 
of the data will be sent to the Trustees. 

In the absence of Chancellor Tranquada, Vice Chancellor Howe 
reported for the Medical School. He informed the Board that 
during the past few months there have been a number of events on 
the campus but one may have gone unnoticed. On April 29 the 
Second Family Day was held. Four hundred parents, family mem- 
bers, and friends of the medical students attended representing 
eighty-six cities and towns in the Commonwealth. Another 
announcement was the recent award by the United States Depart- 
ment of Health and Human services of $198,000 for basic research 
support to the Medical Center. The significance is that this is 
the thirteenth year the medical School has received this kind of 
award and each year it has increased in size and its directly 
related to the on-going research efforts in the Medical Center. 
He announced the appointment of Lawrence E. Fox, Ph.D. as Asso- 
ciate Vice Chancellor for University Relations. His recent 
assignment was directing the 8 million dollar Endowment Campaign 
at the JFK Library.

The Reverend John P. Howe II, father of the Medical School's 
current Vice Chancellor and Academic Dean, has established the 
Phyllis M. Howe lectureship fund in memory of his wife in appre- 
ciation of the UMC nurses, physicians and staff. The proceeds 
from this fund will be used to sponsor an annual lecture in 
Ethics and Medical Decision-making to be held annually at the 
Medical School. The lectureship was selected by the Howe family 
as a fitting means of expressing gratitude for the superb care 
that she received at the Medical Center. 

Chancellor Corrigan announced a recent gift from Digital 
Corporation of $220,000 worth of equipment for the computer pro- 
gram. This year the American Council of Learned Societies 
awarded 65 fellowships two of which went to faculty at the 
Boston campus. He reminded the Trustees that on June 7, 
Chairman and Mrs. Quinn were hosting a dinner marking the 
Twentieth Anniversary of the signing of the legislation which 
lead to the opening of UM/Boston. 

Trustee Knowles then gave the report of the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs. The first item was the FY 85 Bud - 
get for the University Hospital. The proposed budget was 
ninety-six million dollars and included a six percent increase 
in revenue expenses, will result in a 2.5 percent decrease in 
Hospital rates, and assumes an increase in staff productivity 
and patient visits. Without discussion, it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED; To approve the FY85 Budget of the 
University Hospital contained in 
Doc. T84-040. 

The second item, Learning Contracts , authorized the continu- 
ation of the Medical School contracts for as long as the con- 
tracts are mandated by the Legislature. Under the contract stu- 
dents may defer two-thirds of their tuition until after complet- 
ing their post doctoral training. If the student then practices 
medicine for a year or more in Massachusetts the deferred tui- 
tion is forgiven. The Medical School tuition is presently 
$5,170 and the contract defers all but $1,723. The total rev- 
enue deferred is 1.4 million dollars per year. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED t Pursuant to the provisions of the 

state appropriation act to authorize 
the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester to enter 
into learning contracts with stu- 
dents, for so long as such contracts 
are mandated by the Legislature, 
which contracts will make provision 
for deferrals equal to two-thirds of 
the tuition 
^ -3- 



chargeable to the students, and pay- 
back service or monetary payback to 

the Commonwealth on completion of a 

the students' training. (Doc. T82- 
-100 , Addendum I) 

The third item was the Equipment Fee for Engineering Stu - 
dents at the Amherst campus. Two problems facing the School of 
Engineering are the lack of sufficient capital funds to purchase 
equipment and the lack of funds to maintain the gifts in the 
form of equipment which are received from business. The propo- 
sal establishes a trust fund and a fee of $100 per semester to 
be paid by all Engineering majors in order to purchase and main- 
tain the equipment for the School of Engineering. The fee would 
generate $536,000 per year and will be reviewed on an annual 
basis. For students receiving federal financial assistance one- 
half of the cost of the fee will be covered and Chancellor 
Duffey stated that there will be other funds available. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To establish, for the academic years, 

1984-85 through 1987-88, the Engineering 
Equipment Trust Fund at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, which fund 
shall have as its purpose the purchase 
and maintenance of equipment in the 
School of Engineering; the fund shall 
consist of a fee of $100 per semester, 
charged to undergraduate and graduate 
students majoring in Engineering; said 
fee shall be reviewed on an annual ba- 
sis. (Doc. T84-043) 

The next item was to establish the Supplemental Health Bene - 
fits Trust Fund. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To establish the Supplemental Health 
Benefits Coverage Trust Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Am- 
herst; which self-supporting trust 
fund will provide supplemental 
health benefits to students; further, 
to establish a fee on an annual ba- 
sis of not more than $135; said fee 
will be mandatory for students not 
covered under some other comparable 
medical plan or insurance policy. (Doc. T84-022) 

As authorized by the Board of Trustees, the Amherst campus 
solicited bids to install Automatic Teller Machines in the cam- 
pus center. It was moved, seconded and

Bank for the installation of Auto- 
mated Teller Machines in the Campus 
Center at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst; all as set 
forth in Doc. T84-041. 



The next items considered were amendments to and the esta- 
blishment of new Endowment Funds . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To amend the terms of the Robert J. 
McCartney Memorial Scholarship Fund

The proposed Master of Science Degree in Biotechnology and 
Biomedical Science" at UM/ Boston was recommended. Trustee Troy 
stated that the campus clearly established the need and the 
value to society of such a program. The job opportunities for 
graduates should be ample. Without discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED; To establish, subject to he con- 
currence of the Board of Regents, 

-8- t 



a Master of Science Degree Program 
in Biotechnology and Biomedical Sci- 
ence at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston, as set forth in 
Doc. T84-057. 



The Modification of Tuition Waiver Policies was then pre- 
sented. The Amherst campus proposal institutes a number of 
changes in order to up-grade the intercollegiate Athletic Pro- 
gram. A crucial part of this effort is the ability to recruit 
students with exceptional athletic talent. The proposal modi- 
fies the Tuition Waiver Policy as it applies to tuition waivers 
for exceptionally talented students and increases the number of 
tuition waivers from 60 to 100 and allows up to 25 waivers to be 
granted to out-of-state students. Chancellor Duffey noted that 
previous action of the Board of Trustees exempted the use of 
tuition waivers for football and basketball. The majority of 
the tuition waivers have been used on the basis of scholarship 
and that will continue to be the case. The Amherst campus plans 
to examine each year the use of tuition waivers to certify that 
no tuition waivers in the program are being used at the expense 
of waivers need by students financially in need. It was moved, 
seconded and 






VOTED ; To amend, subject to the approval of 
the Board of Regents, Section 4 of 
the Tuition Waiver Policies as 
follows : 

4. Tuition Waivers for 
Exceptionally Talented Students. 

4.1 Eligibility; 

NOW READS; 

Tuition Waivers may be granted to 
Massachusetts residents who will be 
entering the University of Massa- 
chusetts Amherst or Boston campuses

their class; or 

(2) where information on rank in 
class is not available or meaning- 
ful, have demonstrated intellectual 
and academic accomplishment of com- 
parable distinction; or 

(3) have demonstrated outstanding 
talent and ability in the arts or 
athletics 

-9- 



(4) have demonstrated outstanding 
talent for and commitment to com- 
munity service. 

Recipients of tuition waivers shall

contribution to enhance the quality 
of life of the University.

Mr. Troy reported that the Committee considered the sum- 
maries of The Undergraduate Program Reviews at Amherst. The 
review team was composed of distinguished scholars from outside 
the Commonwealth. They reviewed seven departments at Amherst: 
Computer and Information Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chem- 
istry, Biochemistry, Geology, and Zoology. The campus and the 
President found these reviews extremely valuable but one point 
above all stood out sharply in their conclusion. They were fav- 
orable in terms of the quality of faculty and the programs of- 
fered but gravely concerned about the inadequacy in the support 
account as these affect such vital materials as equipment, space 
and laboratories. Mr. Troy stressed the need for stronger sup- 
port service, and that this is a critical matter which he hoped 
would go to the Board of Regents and the Legislature. 

Mr. Troy presented the motion to approve the Supplemental 
Health Benefits Plan. Without discussion, it was moved, sec- 
onded and 

VOTED : That all students at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst be re- 
quired to subscribe to the Supple- 
mental Health Benefits Plan, except 
those who substantiate coverage 
under some other medical plan or 
insurance policy providing com- 
parable benefits. (Doc. T84-022) 

Mr. Troy reported that the Committee discussed at some 
length a proposal to establish a program in Hotel and Restaurant 
Administration at U/Mass Boston. The Committee explored the 
difficulties and the complexities of establishing a program but 
were not in a position to come to any conclusions. The Com- 
mittee urged the Campus to address the matter systematically and 
to come before it in September with informed proposals that 
could considered and acted upon. The Committee needs, for ex- 
ample, a fuller analysis of the job demands in this area as well 
as what is being done in other institutions both public and pri- 
vate. It asked for a model of the four year program at the Har- 
bor campus that would be totally independent of Amherst as well 
as a model of an extension of a program which might come via the 
Amherst campus. These were minimal proposals the Committee 
would like to see. Mr. Kurzman mentioned that he attended the 
Academic and Student Affairs Committee meeting and there were 
pros and cons on both sides of the situation. He stated his 
interest in the program since the formative stages of the dis- 
cussion many months ago. He thought the discussion was good so 
that the problems could be identified and resolved. If not re- 
solved, at least some area of understanding could be reached so 
that there could be some forward movement. It was the consensus 
of the Committee that it looks forward to hearing from the Chan- 
cellors in this matter. Chancellor Duffey stated 

-11- 



one specific item that he thought was important to the dis- 
cussion was a personnel study and study of present programs dem- 
onstrating the need for this particular program for a period of 
time long enough to justify the public investment. 

Chairman Quinn gave the report of the Executive Committee. 
The first item was the Hospital Management Board . It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED; To approve the minutes of the March 
21, and April 18, 1984 meetngs of 
the Hospital Management Board. 
(Doc. T84-037) 



and, 



VOTED; To name the North Physical Education 
Building for Ruth Totman, former 
Head of the Department of Physical 
Education at the University of Mass- 
achusetts at Amherst. (Doc. T84-035) 



and further, 



To re-name Alumni Stadium for Warren 
P. McGuirk, former Athletic Director 
and Dean of Physical Education at 
UM/Amherst. (Doc. T84-035) 



and, 



VOTED ; To name Building 020 for John W. 
McCormack, former Speaker of the 
United States House of Represen- 
tatives. (Doc. T84-035) 

and further, 

To name Building 010 for Phi 11 is 
Wheat ley, the notable black woman 
poet of the eighteenth century. 
(Doc. T84-035) 

The next item was the Tuition Resolution which at a previous 
meeting was presented by Trustee Sweeney. The Executive Com- 
mittee recommended the Tuition Resolution be adopted in a re- 
phrased manner. Trustee Sweeney expressed his disappointment on 
this important issue. Chairman Quinn said that he would call 
upon Mr. Troy in order to make the letter forceful and direct. 
More important, the letter which seeks no tuition increase will 
go to the Legislative leadership and will be competitive with 
the Regents' position of fifteen percent and with the House 

-12- 



position of seven percent therefore making it stronger than what 
was in the original resolution. It was moved, seconded and 

RESOLVED: That the Board of Trustees re- 
affirms its position taken in the 
FY 1985 Budget Request that tui- 
tion at the University of Massa- 
chusetts not be raised; further, 
to authorize the Chairman of the 
Board to submit a letter to the 
Legislature asking that body, in 
voting on the appropriations acts, 
to consider the contribution of 
the students to the General Fund, 
and urging the Legislature to sup- 
port the Board's position. 

Trustees Carlin and Sweeney voted against the motion. 

Under other business, Mr. Knowles gave the Report of the 
Athletic Committee. He prefaced his remarks by stating that it 
was reported in the newspapers that UM/Amherst has gone big time 
in sports and this was not true. It is the intent of the Com- 
mittee that the existing athletics programs become competitive 
within their category. This means becoming competitive with 
peer groups in the Northeast, with Scholarship aid, waivers, and 
facilities. The Committee is dealing with these issues. To 
achieve this end, the University at Amherst Athletics Department 
deems it necessary to eliminate men's and women's sports in the 
areas of skiing, golf, tennis and wrestling. He stated that 
there would be further discussion and reconsideration. Several 
Trustees mentioned that they had received letters from students 
and parents of students who were concerned about the elimination 
of these programs. It was also mentioned that the alternative 
of phasing out the programs should be explored. 

Chairman Quinn reminded the trustees of the celebration 
marking the Twentieth Anniversary of the Harbor Campus the fol- 
lowing evening. In attendance will be former Legislators and 
past and present Governors. In recognition of the particular 
Governor who was on hand to sign the Legislation into Law, Judge 
Sweeney urged the adoption of a resolution that could be pre- 
sented in the form of a plaque to Governor Peabody. It was 
moved, seconded and 



RESOLVED: 



WHEREAS Endicott Peabody, a dis- 
tinguished graduate of Harvard 
College, and a trained lawyer and 
WHEREAS he entered the field of 
politics in 1955 as a member of 
the Governor's Council and eight 
years later in 1963 he became 

-13- 



Governor of Massachusetts and 
WHEREAS during his term as 
Governor he became known as a re- 
former and leader in many areas 
including education and WHEREAS he 
signed into law Chapter 56 2 of the 
Acts of 1964 which provided for 
the establishment of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts facilities 
in the vicinity of the City of 
Boston. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the 
Board of Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts does hereby 
commend Endicott Peabody for these 
contributions to all of government 
especially higher education and 
particularly the University of 
Massachusetts . 



Robert H. Quinn

There was no further business to come before the Board and 
the meeting was adjourned at 4:30 p.m.

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:10 p.m. 
President Knapp asked that Chancellor Tranquada report on the 
crash of the New England Life Flight helicopter on the previous 
day. 

Chancellor Tranquada said the flight was the fourth of the 
day and it was returning to the Medical Center from Martha's 
Vineyard with a patient on board. Also aboard were the attend- 
ing physician, Dr. Elliott Strom, the attending nurse, Madelyn 
Elia, and the pilot Billy Ray Sullivan. 

At 10:28 p.m. the pilot radioed that one engine of the two 
engine craft had failed. Within twenty seconds the second en- 
gine failed. The pilot, in attempt to land on a highway swerved 
to avoid an automobile and crashed into a telephone pole. Dr. 
Strom and Mr. Sullivan were killed. Ms. Elia was severely in- 
jured. Ms. Marie Winslow, the patient, was strapped onto a 
stretcher and was uninjured. 

In the discussion that followed Chancellor Tranquada noted 
that Ms. Elia's condition was stable, that Mr. Sullivan was an 
employee of the lessor of the aircraft — Omni Flight of 
Baltimore — and that the failure of both engines was a very 
unusual circumstance. 



Chairman Quinn thanked the Chancellor for his report and 
asked for a moment of silence in memory of Dr. Strom and Mr. 
Sullivan. 

Chancellor Tranquada then spoke of recent layoffs at the 
Medical Center. Of those laid off, fifteen had been given other 
positions, five "bumped" employees, four had retired, and the 
remainder had been terminated.

Transplantation Program; and 
further, to approve the recommen- 
dations of the Nominating Committee

sonnel Policy of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School as set 
forth in Doc. T81-071, Addendum 1. 

In the absence of Chancellor Duffey, Dean Bischoff reviewed 
the selection process involved in the search for the Dean of the 
Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Amherst. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board concur 
along with the President in the ap-

the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. (Doc. T84-064) 

Chairman Quinn then called for a motion to enter executive 
session to discuss honorary degrees and a personnel matter at 
the Amherst campus. It was moved, seconded and, on roll call, 
unanimously 

VOTED; To enter Executive Session. 

The time was 2:40 p.m. 

At 3:10 p.m. the Board came out of Executive Session and it 
was 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board award an 
honorary Doctor of Humane Letters to 
that individual agreed upon in ex- 
ecutive session and to instruct 
Chancellor Tranquada to proceed with 
the necessary arrangements. 

Trustee Knowles informed the Committee that the Athletic 
Committee would be meeting on July 31, 1984. It was mentioned 
that the Trustees had received from students and parents letters 
regarding the proposed elimination of the skiing, wrestling and 
golf programs at the Amherst campus. Some of the Committee mem- 
bers expressed the opinion that the cost involved in the pro- 
grams was minimal. After a brief discussion, Mr. Knowles asked 
that the Trustees be polled prior to the July 31 meeting re- 
garding the proposed elimination of these programs. 



The meeting adjourned at 3:35 p.m.

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board postpone for one 

year the requirement that Professor Frank Fata 
return to the University on completion of his 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant him a year's 
leave of absence without pay. (Doc. T84-071) 

The Trustees then discussed Admission of Nonresidents to the 
Medical School . Chancellor Tranquada said that the Medical 
School of the American University in Beirut had been forced to 
close because of the civil war. The dean of the school had 
asked if Worcester could accept to transfer students from 
Beirut. 

In the ensuing discussion it was noted that the Beirut 
Medical School had always had close ties with American medi- 
cal Schools and the school has an excellent reputation. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board authorize Chan- 
cellor Tranquada to admit as additional members 
of the Medical School class two transfer stu- 
dents from the Medical School of the American 
University of Beirut, under the conditions 
set forth in Doc. T84-070. 

The Committee then discussed Regents' Institutional Programs 
Review — UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. (Doc. T84-068) At the behest 
of the Regents all undergraduate programs in public colleges and 
universities are being reviewed. At both Boston and Amherst the 
reviewers have found the faculty and the programs to be of high 
quality but there are problems with facilities and equipment. 

The next item on the agenda was Double Major in Biology and 
Medical Technology — UM/Boston. After discusson it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board approve the Bach- 
elor of Science degree in Biology and Medical 
Technology at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston as described in Doc. T84-069; further, 
to authorize the Chancellor to waive tuition 
for Medical Technology majors in the clinical 
year at an accredited laboratory. 



The Committee then discussed the Regents' Statewide Review 
of Enginee ring and Nursing . (Doc. T84-074) The team of evalua- 
tors had recommended that the School of Engineering at Amherst 
be allocated $6,000,000 for facilities improvement and equipment 
and be given an annual allocation of $1,100,000 for equipment. 
Also, additional facility and resources for instructional 
support. 

In. the case of Boston, the team had recommended that the cam- 
pus be permitted to establish a Bachelor s degree in Engineering 
Fhysieg = 

The nursing evaluators said that the program at Boston 
needed additional funding, more full time faculty, particularly 
doctoral faculty to develop a planned master ' s degree program. 
At Amherst there is also a need for additional resources. 

The next item was G raduation Lists - — UM/Amherst. Without dis- 
cussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED s To recommend that the Board approve the May, 1984, 
Graduation Lists at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst contained in Doc.T84-001D, sub- 
ject to the completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the campus. 

The matter of the Student Constitution at UM/Amherst was dis- 
cussed briefly* as was the proposed Hotel/Restaurant Management 
program at Boston. 

There was no turther business to come before the Committee 
and the meeting was adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:15 p.m. He 

asked if there were any additions or changes to the minutes of 

the May or June meetings of the Board. There were none and it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the May 16, 1984 
and June 6, 1984 Board of Trustees meeting. 

Chairman Quinn, in the course of his report, noted that the 
FY' 85 appropriation act had been approved by the Legislature and 
signed by the Governor. The act was very favorable to all 
segments of the University. He asked the Trustees to consider 
the question of a retreat in order to share ideas and to 
determine how the Board was functioning, and the advisability of 
a special Board meeting in September. 

President Knapp noted that the budget act contained certain 
language that would require Board action on application fees. 
The act also directs the Board of Regents to increase tuition by 
seven percent, this means the 1984/85 tuition rates will be: 

Resident undergraduates $1,208 
Resident graduates $1,530 



) 






BOT Out-of-State undergraduates $4,032 

8/8/84 Out-of-State graduates $4,224 

The President said that tuition at the Medical School would 
increase seven or nine percent. 

The budget also included $3,700,000 for collaboration among 
universities and colleges and the public schools. The Amherst 
campus was allocated $281,000, Boston $417,000 and Worcester 
$114,000. In addition, the steering committee for Boston public 
schools received $264,000. 

Two former Trustees, both members of the Class of 1957 at 
Amherst, the President noted, had been appointed to the Board of 
Regents. Paul Marks was appointed to the Board, David Beaubien 
was reappointed and named Chairman. 

The program reviews conducted on the campuses and state-wide 
which relate to science and technology programs are almost 
totally uniform with respect to their affirmative attitude 
toward the quality of the faculty at Amherst and Boston. The 
problems found are related to equipment and facilities. He 
stated that the program reviews have been helpful and have given 
insight into sane of the programs within the institution. Some 
special allocation of equipment funds are projected for the 
Amherst campus to help solve seme of the engineering problems. 

He concluded his report with announcing that an item high on 
the agenda for the coming year should be the Joint Education 
Committee Policy Review in Higher Education. Other reviews are 
being conducted on a national and regional level and these will 
be important for the long term future of the University. 

Chancellor Duffey noted that the freshman enrollment this 
year was 150 students larger than last year. Applications had 
increased by approximately 24% from the last two years and 
out-of-state increased by 36%. He acknowleged a contribution 
from Analog devices which provides the School of Engineering 
with a $300,000 grant to support a senior professorship for the 
next five years in the Department of Electrical and Computer 
engineering . 

Chancellor Corrigan gave an update of the various efforts 
with the BRA on traffic patterns on campus and spoke of recent 
discussions with various constituencies about the erection of a 
tasteful memorial to eighty-eight soldiers who died in Vietman. 
The memorial would be located on the parcel of land owned by the 
University adjacent to the Yacht Club. He concluded his report 
by noting that at the Convocation on September 17th there will 
be a reaffirmation of some directions for the campus including 
a great deal of attention to concerns about the quality of the 
higher educational experience. He noted that this spring 279 
state employees not associated with educational institutions 
have availed themselves of the opportunity of taking courses on

the campus without paying tuition to the Commonwealth and the 
number is anticipated to increase. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that two major events occurred 
on the Medical School campus during the last month. The first 
was the reduction in force within the University Hospital. The 
current figures of that layoff show that twenty-eight were 
placed in other post ions within the medical school/ four had 
retired and twenty were laid off. Three of those are in the 
process of being recalled and it is anticipated that there will 
be additional recalls during the year. The other event was the 
crash of the New England Life Flight helicopter and the loss of 
the attending physician, Dr. Elliott Strom, the attending nurse, 
Madelyn Elia, and the pilot Billy Ray Sullivan. Chancellor 
Tranquada said that after a re-examination and extensive 
discussion about the program and the Life Flight commenced 
flying a week later.

Trustee Carl in noted as a point of information that the 
statistics on the number of cases between 1978 and 1984 where 
people who were on Sabbatical Leave sought and received a 
postponement of the requirement to return was slightly less than 
three percent. 

The next item was an exception to the Trustee Admission 
Policy at the Medical School. Chancellor Tranquada had received 
a request for assistance from the Dean of the Medical School of 
the American University in Beruit to admit to the University two 
two-year students who because of religious reasons were endanger 
of their life. The request, if approved, would necessitate a 
waiver of the policy requirement that admission to the Medical 
School be granted only to Massachusetts residents. The 
Committee discussed this at length and learned that the two 
students would be added to the student body thereby not denying 
Massachusetts students entrance. The students applications 

-4- 






would be reviewed by the faculty and would meet all standards 
for application. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Chancellor Tranquada to admit as 

additional members of the Medical School class two 
transfer students from the Medical School of the 
American University of Beirut, under the conditions 
set forth in Doc. T84-070.

and further, 

VOTED: To approve the May, 1984, Graduation Lists at the 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst contained in 
Doc. T84-001D, subject to the completion of all 
requirements as certified by the Recorder of the 
campus. 

Chairman Troy concluded his report by noting that the 
Committee had reviewed the President's summary on the Regent's 
State-wide review of Engineering and Nursing. The review was 
part of the Regent's efforts to develop a long range perspective 
on certain aspects of state-wide public higher education. As it 
affects Amherst, the report focused on several basic needs if 
the quality of the engineering program is to be maintained. It 
is felt that 4 1/2 million dollars for equipment with an annual 
allocation of 1.1 million dollars is needed. A study of the 
long range space needs was also included in the report and 1.5 
million dollars was recommended for immediate renovations. 
Also, more faculty are needed particularly in electrical and 
computer engineering in Boston. At Boston, the Bachelor of 
Science Degree in Engineering Physics should be established 
although additional information about that program was 
requested. The report praised the collaborative engineering 
program which involves the UM/Boston, Northeastern University, 
Boston University, and Tufts University. In nursing it was 
concluded that the Amherst program was comparable with the 
general direction of the nursing profession throughout the 
Commonwealth and nation. The Amherst program will require 
additional resources but caution should be exercised against 
any development steming from current sources. At Boston, which 
inherited the Boston State program at the time of the merger, 
there is a need for increased funding in order to maintain its 
quality. More full-time faculty are needed and if Boston moves 
to develop a master's program faculty at the doctoral level 
should be hired.

(f) To review Equal Opportunity /Affirmative Action 
Plans to ensure that due process is accorded to

The next matter for consideration related to the

stressed the importance and need for a Standing Committee to

and, 



To strike the wording in Article III, Section 1 and 
substitute therefor the following: 

ARTICLE III. COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. 

SECTION 1. STANDING COMMITTEES. There shall be 
five standing committees of the Board of Trustees: 
the Executive Committee, the Committee on Academic 
and Student Affairs, the University Relations and 
Development Committee, the Committee on Budget and 
Financial Affairs and the Affirmative Action 
Committee. 

Chairman Quirm then called for the report of the Athletic 
Committee. Trustee Khowles said that the Committee had met 
twice since the last Board meeting. The Committee had agreed 
with Dean Bischoff 's recommendation that the wrestling program 
be dropped and that men's and women's skiing, golf, and temis 
should be assigned club status. That is, the sports would 
continue but their funding basis would change. Those 
participating in these sports would raise funds which funds 
would be matched by a grant from the Athletic Department. 
Trustee Khowles finished by noting that this recommendation 
would result in savings. 

Trustee Kurzman noted that the Trustees had received 
numerous letter protesting the elimination of the wrestling 
program and the change in status of the other programs. Also, 
the proposal had received unfavorable comments from the media. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED: That the sports of wrestling and women's and men's 
golf tennis and skiing be retained as 
intercollegiate athletic programs at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst through FY1986, at the 
end of which period they shall be club sports; 
during FY1985 and 1986 these programs will 
be funded from Trustee Reserve funds. 

The Board also passed the Reaffirmation of Delegations of

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada 

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 1:20 p.i t The 
matter that was subject to consideration was the New Holding 
Company and the naming of the members to the Hospital Corpora- 
tion. It was reported that there had been no further action on 
Senate 601 which would have prohibited the establishment of any 
holding companies or any reorganization of Hospital Corporations 
without determination of need. Chancellor Tranquada was asked 
to explain more the matter impelling him to urge the Board to 
action. 

Chancellor Tranquada stated that one of the realities in the 
medical field is that a revolution is occurring in health care 
financing. One of the sorts of realities we face is similar to 
a set of occurrences that happened in Minneapolis. Several 
years ago, and more intensively in the last three or four years, 
the business community decreed that one of the important factors 
in the provision of medical care will be price competition not 
quality. In Minneapolis, this resulted in the merger of a num- 
ber of hospitals and the establishment of new corporate entities 
for the delivery of medical care. During all of this the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota Medical Center and Hospital did nothing. 
They felt they could ride on their reputation and patients would 
continue to be referred to them. In fact, they could not have 
been more mistaken. Within the last three to four years, the 
percentage of hospital beds they were billed dropped by some 30 
to 40 percent. A plan approved by the Legislature for the re- 
newal of their antiquated hosptial with an 800 bed has been 
revised to build it as a 400 bed hospital and the University is 
finally waking up to the fact that they were asleep. They sim- 
ply did not read the signals as to what was happening. The 
events that have occurred in Minneapolis are at 



Executive 
9/12/84 



least three years ahead of what we read in Central Massachusetts 
and in Worcester, but it is perfectly clear that the scenario is 
happening. The private hospitals of significance in the City 
have established holding corporations. All of them are moving 
quickly to set up their own health care corporations. They are 
getting into long term care, HMO's and are setting up exclusive 
contracts with HMO's so patients cannot be referred anywhere 
else. 

New circumstances require new ways of operation. Chancellor 
Tranquada said there were three of four choices: 

1) to gain a guarantee from the Legislature that the hospital 
will be subsidized so that it can perform its tasks. 

2) to impose stringent cost controls and compete on the basis of 
providing the simpliest kinds of care. This is inconsistent 
with the role of the University hospital. 

3) to detach the University hospital completely. West Virgina, 
Maryland, and Florida were cited as examples That possibility 
is being studied. It was pointed out that this approach would 
have to be done through the Legislature. 

4) the final option is to look for new ways of doing business 
that will provide the most possible efficiency, enable the hos- 
pital to deal with current economics to raise revenues to com- 
pete in a price competitive basis, and still support the edu- 
cational research programs. That is what the new corporation is 
abou t . 

The new corporation is an old idea but it is an answer to 
contemporary problems and one which Chancellor Tranquada be- 
lieves is a beginning of an answer to future problems. It pro- 
vides alternatives and will allow us to reach capital markets 
promptly and economically. The only access to capital avail- 
able, at the moment, is through Legislative action. It will 
provide access to commerical tax advantages from which we are 
now excluded. 

Chairman Quinn asked that the report relative to the 
Minneapolis study be made available to trustees as well as the 
articles of organization for the proposed corporation and for 
the subsidiary corporations. 

Trustee Robsham also asked to see the Articles of Incorpora- 
tion. He was interested in who is on the Board and what process 
was utilized for nomination to the Board. He too was concerned 
about the fact that the Board already appears to be a fait ac- 
compli. He was concerned that, for example, a program developed 
with state money would be turned over to a private corporation. 



-2- 



Chancellor Tranquada responded that the nominations before Executive 
the Board have been reviewed and approved by the Hospital Man- 9/12/84 
agement Board and are forwarded as their recommendation. The 
Trustees have the option of doing what it will with those nom- 
inations and there is no board until it is approved by the 
Trustees. There are only draft by-laws. He sees the makeup of 
the Board as it is proposed with six university related people 
and five non-university related people providing a measure of 
ample control and communication. The problem is that the Corp- 
oration has to be constructed in such a way that it can function 
legally and in fact be a separate entity. 

The Westboro idea is separate from this, and it has nothing 
to do with the new corporation. 

Counsel Searson noted for informational purposes that the 
question of conflict of interest is being reviewed with the 
State Ethics Commission. 

Trustee Troy said he found the Chancellor's statement very 
persuasive and impressive but he was troubled by the absence of 
an alternative. He also had questons about what the response 
would be legally and politically. 

Chairman Quinn shared all of the stated concerns and in 
particular, concern about what the legislative and gubernatorial 
response would be. Trustee Zervas hoped that the Board would 
not lose sight of the fact that this is a unique situation. 
It is a university hospital and really cannot be compared to 
other state agencies. Many hospitals are going in this direc- 
tion and there is no other alternative. 

There being no further busineess to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 1:50 p.m.

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:35 p.m. 

The first item on the agenda was the Naming of Members 
to the Hospital Corporation. Chairman Quinn mentioned 
that at the meeting of the Executive Committee there was 
thorough discussion of the Hospital Corporation. Judge 
Sweeney asked that legal counsel and the Chancellor care- 
fully review the Board of Trustees authority in maintain- 
ing authority over the direction of the Corporation and 
the potential implications of Legislative involvement. 

Chancellor Tranquada reiterated his invitation to the 
Trustees to join the Medical School Leadership to hear Dr. 
Paul Elwood, President of Inter-Study, a Minneapolis based 
health care economic consulting firm. Dr. Elwood is one 
of the nation's leading experts on health care economics. 

The next item on the agenda was Executive Compensa- 
tion. The Chairman announced that at the Executive meet- 
ing of the Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs, the 
Committee considered the item in detail. There was a very 
healthy and worthwhile discussion and appreciation for the 
points brought up by Chairman Knowles. It was the sense 
of the Committee that the Board members who were not 



I 



Special present should be given the opportunity to digest the 
^^ comments of Chairman Knowles. For that reason it was 
9/14/84 decided to postpone the matter for further consideration

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 2:10 p.nu 

The creation of the position of Dean for Graduate Studies 

and Research at UM/Boston was dealt with first . In support of 
this recommendation, President Knapp noted that the size of the 
graduate program at Boston and the number of degrees offered 
have increased and it is now time to move to parity with other 
institutions of similar size and scope. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board create the 

position of Dean of Graduate Studies and 
Research at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst. (Doc. T84-096) 

and further, 

VOTED: To recommend along with the President in 

the apppointment by the Chancellor of Faud 
Safwat as Dean of Graduate Studies at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston. 
(Doc. T84-097) 



Executive Associate Chancellor Donald Babcock gave a presentation of 
9/17/84 the Physical Master Plan Review at UM/ Boston. The original 

master plan for the Harbor campus developed in the late 1960 ' s 
imagined there would be several different college buildings and 
that level of construction would be achieved by 1980 in three 
phases. Currently, the campus is in Phase I plus the physical 
education building and the exterior playing areas. The original 
master plan further imagined the campus would expand both in 
terms of enrollment and capacity. The ratio of available square 
footage to students is substantially different than what was 
anticipated in the master plan. The expectations at that time 
did not distinguish between headcount students and FTE stu- 
dents. The headcount enrollment is expected to continue to 
increase with the graduate student enrollment also increasing so 
that the total headcount will continue to expand as the campus 
approaches FY 1990. This means the number of programs which are 
expanding as the campus grows do not have adequate physical 
facilities. With the redevelopment of the housing area in 
Columbia point, the establishment of the Library and now the 
Archives, it is clear that a revision of the master plan for the 
land use on the Harbor campus in order to be sure that we use 
the remaining available land propertly. New facilities are 
needed for a variety of programs, the PH.D. Program in Environ- 
mental Science, and the several institutes being developed. 
Also, the Student Center should occupy parcels of this land. 
These new facilities should be configured in such a way that 
they contribute to the overall design of the campus. 

It was reported that the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations has established for all institutions of Higher Edu- 
cation a program of revised master planning so that capital 
requirements for construction can fit into a master planning 
process. They have insisted that the Boston campus do a re- 
vision and anticipate making available upwards of $75,000 to 
underwrite this process. It is anticipated that next month DCPO 
will present to the Designer Selection Board a request for aut- 
horization to proceed with a master plan for the Harbor Campus. 

It was the sense of the Committee that there is a law estab- 
lishing DCPO and it does have oversight but it does not initi- 
ate. The Campus is in the process of initiating/revising the 
master plan and Associate Chancellor Babcock was asked to com- 
municate this to DCPO. 

The next matter was consideration of the creation of the 
position Vice Chancellor for Research at UM/ Amherst. President 
Knapp supported the Amherst campus recommendation to elevate the 
functions within the administrative structure in order to give 
greater emphasis and focus to research activities. He stated 
that in the background and data presented by Chancellor Duffey 
the research function is now a twenty-five million dollar budget 
for the campus. That was less than he would like to see and he 

-2- 



I 



thought there was an opportunity for expansion in the research Executive 
function if extensive attention is paid to the development of 9/17/84 
research. He referred to a listing of Senior University posi- 
tions in a number of institutions in New England such as the 
University of Connecticut and University of Maine which have a 
vice president for research. Within the metropolitan area, MIT 
is the only one which has a position by that name. Among the 
Northeastern states and land grant universities which are sim- 
ilar to the University, Rutgers, Maryland, and Perm State com- 
bine the function of Research and Graduate Studies. In making 
this recommendation the Amherst campus would be moving in an 
appropriate direction. 

Chancellor Duffey reviewed the current administrative struc- 
ture and responsibilities and noted that his proposal was a 
change in title. After a lengthly discussion of the advertising 
procedures utilized, the reporting structure of the administra- 
tion, a clarification of the change in title and whether the 
individual would receive further renumeration, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board create the 

position of Vice Chancellor for Research 
and Dean of the Graduate School at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 
(Doc. T84-066) 

and further, 

VOTED; To recommend the the Board concur along 
with the President in the appointment by 
the Chancellor of Samuel Conti as Vice 
Chancellor for Research and Dean of the 
Graduate School. (Doc. T84-067) 

Chancellor Tranquada spoke further about Naming of the Mem - 
bers of the Board of the Hospital Corporation and outlined some 
of the events occurring at the other hospitals in the Worcester 
area. There were still concerns raised about the number of 
Truscees to be on the Corporation Board. 



The meeting adjourned at 3;40 p.m.

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 12:15 p.m. The 
first item on the agenda was Postponement of Satbatical Leave Re- 
quirement at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 

Professor Shmuel Bolozky of the Department of Judaic Studies 
had spent his leave assisting in the development of a Judaic 
Studies Curriculum at the University of Central Florida. A 
leave without pay for one semester would enable him to complete 
this project, this would benefit the University as well as 
Professor Bolozky. After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for one 
semester the requirement that Shmuel Bolozky 
return to the Unversity on completion of his 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant Professor 
Bolozky a leave of absence without pay from 
January 27, 1985 through August 31, 1985. 
(Doc. T84-098) 

The next two items dealt with the establishment of the two 
named Chairs in the Department of Sociology at Amherst and the 
appointment of incumbents thereto. The individuals after whom 
the chairs were to be named were of great note in the history of 
sociology and the individuals who were recommended as the incum- 
bents were of like quality. After discussion it was moved, sec- 
onded and

(lbc=,T84-099) ,:,vi. 



The final item on the agenda was Hotel and -Restaurant Admini- 
stration Program at- the University of Massachusetts at Boston. 

The discussion centered on several aspect s-^proposals that 
the program should be a joint venture between. Boston and 
Amherst , a satellite program given by Amherst at the Boston 
campus and a program which would be part of: the tJMass /Boston 
College of Management — the tortuous process necessary to 
establish a new program, campus governance, the President's 
office, the Trustees, the Regents and at times the private 
sector and the Legislature — and the necesity of determining the 
need for such a program. 



After ^thorough discussion it was the consensus of the Com- 
mittee that Chancellor Corrigan was authorized to bring to the 
Trustees a complete proposal for a hotel and restaurant 
management program, including a market survey, a curriculum, 
staffing and financial implications. 



There was no further business to come before the Committee

Signs and Graphics project at the Boston campus. This 
was the result of the study which had taken place on 
the Boston campus. There was a di cuss ion of alternate 
sources to pay for the entrance signs, the number of 
previous requests made by the campus for transfers 
from the Trust Fund Reserve and the priority of this 
request. Associate Chancellor Donald Babcock gave a 
presentation of the proposal for the signs and dir- 
ections from the entry level on to the campus at 
Morrissey Boulevard, around the exterior traffic pat- 
terns, into the parking lot, through the parking gar- 
ages and through the buildings. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board allocate 

$200,000 to the Chancellor at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts for signs and 
graphics as more fully described in Doc. 
T84-108. 

The third item was the Feasibility Study for a Multipurpose 
Arena on the Amherst campus. The two actions proposed were that 
the Building Authority undertake a feasibility study of the 
arena and that the provision of three million dollars which was 
provided by the Legislature for a skating rink be changed and 
made available to be used for the Health Center and Infirmary. 
The feasibility study would include not only the location, the 
use and structure of the facility, potential wider uses in the 
community but also alternative methods of funding. Trustee 
Keller voiced his concern about the sports facility and arena 
because of the amount which would have to be paid by the 
students. 

There was a discussion of hockey at the Amherst campus. 
Trustee Carlin stated that the Board should make a determination 
on the hockey issue prior to including it in the feasibility 
study and that the Trustees have a responsibility in all matters 
to be very clear on what they believe should or should not be 
done. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board request that 
the University of Massachusetts Building 
Authority undertake a feasibility study of 
a Multipurpose Arena for the Amherst Cam- 
pus (Doc. T84-107). 

and, 



-2- 



VOTED; To recommend that the Board ask the Leg- q^oc/o/ 
islature for a change in the wording of the ' ' 
FY84 capital outlay appropriation of 
$3,000,000 for a multipurpose sports arena 
in order that said funds may be used for 
alterations to the University Health 
Center/Infirmary at the University of 
Massahusetts at Amherst. (Doc. T84-107) 

The Committee agreed that it will address and ask the appro- 
priate committee of the Board to address the matter of hockey 
and its future at the Amherst campus on or before the December 
meeting . 

President Knapp then gave a general overview of the FY 1986 
Capital Outlay Request . Last year, the General Court approved 
thirty-two million dollar Capital Outlay Budget for the Univer- 
sity. To date, only two projects have been released for the 
purchase of lease computer equipment at the Amherst and Boston 
campuses. What was included in the FY' 86 Request assumes there 
will be no Capital Outlay in FY' 85. Therefore, it included a 
carryover of a considerable number of items from previous re- 
quests. The sum total of what was in the five year Capital 
Outlay Request provides for repair, replacement and renovation 
as forty percent of the total request. New items are forty- 
three percent, energy conservation was six percent, equipment 
was seven percent and campus improvements was four percent. At 
Amherst sixty-nine percent of the equipment was in repair, re- 
placement and renovation, Boston was twenty-nine percent, and 
Worcester was seven percent. The balance between the new items 
was the exact opposite with sixteen percent at Amherst, sixty- 
eight percent at Boston, and sixty-one percent at Worcester. 

The Chancellors from the three campuses were asked to com- 
ment further on the projects. Chancellor Duffey stressed the 
critical nature of the heating system and stated that the campus 
was being visited the following week by Frank Keefe, Secretary 
of Administration and Finance in the hopes of resolving the 
matter . 

At the Boston campus, it was pointed out that the campus 
just finished its 11th year of occupying the Harbor site. Of 
the three phase campus plan only phase 1 has been built. Pnase 
1 was suppose to handle 8,000 - 8,500 students and, excluding 
the downtown campus, there are 10,000 students. On one hand, 

there is a new space recruirement .there are also outstanding buildin 
problems that have been with the campus since 1974, and the 
results of lack of deferred maintenance is becoming apparent.

nherent problems with the downtown campus were identi- 
ell as the urgency of the need to repair the elevators

problems with the elevators and the steps taken to 
commitment for funding for the replacement. After a 
discussion, the Committee directed President Knapp to 
ly bring in a state inspector to see if the elevators

ontingency plan. 



With reference to the items related to the McCormack Insti- 
tute Trusee Carlin asked that the Chancellor provide him with a 
list of individuals working for the Institute, including speci- 
fics as were they were previously employed, the current annual 
salaries and if they are paid from other than state sources. 

Chancellor Tranquada presented an overview of the Worcester 
campus priorities. 

Trustee Carlin asked to go on record as not approving any 
studies or expenditures related to the proposed Dock and 
McCormack Institute at Boston and the Athletic Center at 
Worcester. With reference to the Building at 250 Stuart Street, 
he thought the Dukakis Administration, the Legislative leader- 
ship and the University should resolve the Long-Range Plan (keep 
or sell the building) for 250 Stuart Street before consulting 
dollars are spent on upgrading ideas. He said that if the de- 
cision is to keep 250 Stuart Street, it must be clear as to how 
it fits into the mission of UM/Boston.

1984 meeting of the Board. 

Chairman Quinn reported that since the last meeting of the 
Eoard of Trustees he had the honor along with Trustees Caruso 
and Costin of representing the Board at the recent meeting of 
the Association of Governing Boards. It was an interesting and 
effective meeting and Trustee Caruso returned with copies for 
the Trustees of Presidents Make a Difference by Clark Kerr. 
Chairman Quinn announced that it would be an item for discussion 
at the upcoming Trustees Retreat scheduled for October 18 and 19 

Chairman Quinn expressed his appreciation to Chancellor 
Duffey for hosting the meeting and the hospitality at the 



BoT luncheon held prior to the meeting. A welcome was extended to 
10/3/84 the new faculty representative at the Amherst campus, Paul 
Mankin. 

In the interest of time, the Chancellors waived giving their 
reports . 

President Knapp welcomed to the University Executive Vice 
Chancellor and Provost Richard O'Brien from the Amherst campus. 
He gave a report on the status of the elevators at 250 Stuart 
Street which were not fully operative. The State Inspector of 
the Elevators inspected them in July and reported to University 
Counsel, Mr. Searson that the elevators are safe for use but 
there is a repair problem. The firm which deals with the repair 
of the elevators stated they can deal with the repair of the 
elevators on a short run solution within an estimate of thirty- 
five to forty thousand dollars. He requested replacement of the 
elevators from the Division of Capital Planning and Operations 
in the amount of $550,000 and it has been indicated that 
$125,000 will be released for a handicapped elevator on certifi- 
cation of the permanent status of the building. He has given 
that certification and expects to be talking with the Governor 
within the next ten days about the problem which exists at 250 
Stuart Street and the use of the building.

The last item discussed by the Committee was the proposal to BoT 
establish a program of Hotel and Restaurant Administration at 10/3/84 
UMass Boston. The Committee reviewed in some detail all the 
ideas and suggestions that had emerged over the past months, 
since the project was first proposed by Trustee Kurzman. 

The two major documents reviewed were from the Boston campus 
and the report by the former Dean of Cornell's School of Hotel 
Administration, Robert Beck. The Committee concluded that if it 
was to go forward with the proposal it would ultimately recom- 
mend an independent free-standing program at Boston with Amherst 
assisting in a consultative manner. 

The Committee agreed there was a need for such a program at 
Boston and expressed its gratitude to Trustee Kurzman for pro- 
posing it. The career possibilities for students exist and the 
program will doubtless draw many students as majors. The new 
program, if established, will be within the College of Manage- 
ment. The Committee instructed Chancellor Corrigan to bring to 
the Committee a detailed proposal or plan to establish an 
independent Hotel and Management program at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, including a market survey, evidence of 
student interest, a detailed curriculum, a careful estimate of 
the number of faculty required, a space analysis in terms of 
classrooms and laboratories, and overall costs. 

Trustee Knowles gave the report of the Committee on Budget 
and Financial Affairs. The first item was the establishment of 
a Special Student Registration Trust Fund at the Boston campus. 
Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish the Special Student Regi- 
stration Trust Fund at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, which self- 
supporting trust fund shall have as its 
principal purpose the provision of advis- 
ing, testing and registration services to 
students who take one or more courses for 
credit but are not enrolled as degree 
seeking students; the trust fund shall 
consist of a fee of $10, payable on ini- 
tial enrollment. (Doc. T84-110) 

At the Committee meeting, there was a thorough discussion 
and a detailed presentation, which was unanimously supported, 
to improve the signs and graphical layout of the Boston campus. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To allocate $200,000 to the Chancellor at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Boston for signs and 
graphics as more fully described in Doc. T84-108.

BoT At the request of Trustee Knowles, Mr. Jack Li ttlef ield 

10/3/84 described the request to the Building Authority to undertake a 
feasibility study for a multi-purpose arena at the Amherst 
campus. The study would include a cost and financial analysis 
which would allow the Trustees to determine whether the project 
should proceed through the Building Authority or remain on the 
Capital Outlay agenda. 

Trustee Keller expressed concern about the funding of the 
proposal and made a motion to table action on the feasibility 
study. This was defeated. 

After a brief discussion of hockey at the Amherst campus, 
Chairman Quinn requested that the Committee on Intercollegiate 
Athletics include within its purview a study of hockey at the 
Amherst campus and make an effort to return with a recommenda- 
tion by the end of the calendar year or the February Board 
meeting .

of Massachusetts at Amherst. 
(Doc. T84-107) 

The next item was the FY ' 86 Capital Outlay Request. Presi- 
dent Knapp outlined the categories of the five year request 
which included repair, replacement, and renovation, new items, 
energy conservation, equipment and campus improvement. Trustee 
Sweeney expressed his concern about a potential emergency break- 
down of the power plant at the Amherst campus. Chancellor Duff 
responded that staff from the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations were visiting the campus the following day and would 
be apprised of the urgency of the situation. Trustee Carlin 
noted his concern about several items in the request. It was 
then moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To approve the FY86 Capital Outlay Request contained

UM/ Boston : Chancellor Corrigan; Ms. Gant , Affirmative Action

P Finance; Ms. Booker, Affirmative Action Director 

Chairman Costin convened the first meeting of the Affirma- 
tive Action Committee at 10:05 a.m. and welcomed the members 
present . 

He stated that at the August 8, 1984 Board meeting, it was 
voted to have standing Committee for Affirmative Action. The 
purpose of this meeting was to formulate plans, programs and 
policies for the University of Massachusetts Affirmative Action 
and Equal Employment Opportunity Program. He noted there was no 
planned agenda and was interested in hearing suggestions from 
the campuses as to the type of effort that the Committee should 
make to set forth a policy that will be understood and carried 
through University-wide. Further, he raised the question 
whether there was a need for a University wide program. 

President Knapp presented two major issues which he thought 
should be highlighted: the reporting system and the organiza- 
tional structure. A program for dealing with quarterly and 
annual affirmative action reports has been r einstituted. The 
Committee needs that data to monitor and make an assessment of 
the system. It should be established so it encompasses per- 
sonnel actions, contracts, purchasing and the range of activi- 
ties which have some affirmative action components. 



AA With reference to the organizational structure, he will take 

10/15/84 t ^ ie initiative to sit down and work with the Chancellors and 
Vice Chancellors. 

There currently exists a university-wide policy that ad- 
dresses non-discrimination and affirmative action. There are 
very detailed plans for the President's office and each of the 
campuses fulfilling federal regulations. The campuses are often 
audited by the various agencies and federal government testing 
whether the plans are detailed enough to fit the law and whether 
the responses to the plan are effective. 

Other discussion focused on recruitment, internal policy 
modifications from the Worcester campus relating to Affirmative 
Action statements to be brought to the Committee, how to com- 
municate a demonstrable commitment to affirmative action to 
those who recruit and hire, ways to encourage minority recruit- 
ment. One viewpoint expressed was the need for broad general 
guidelines for the University at large but within that structure 
the campuses should operate autonomously. 

At the conclusion of the discussion, it was agreed and voted 

To establish an ad hoc committee comprised of the three 
affirmative action officers and Billie Willits who will chair 
the committee. The Committee was asked to prepare a recommenda- 
tion to the Committee to be distributed prior to the 
next meeting on the overall university policy statement and what 
direction the University should pursue. 

and, 

That the affirmative action officers from the campuses and 
the President's Office be active members of the Affirmative 
Action Committee 

and further, 

That the Committee should be provided by the President's 
office and each campus v/ith a synopsis of what currently exists, 
what should exist and what they would like to see 

There being no further business to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 11:25 a.m.

vided in the 13 (miscellaneous) Subsidiary Account for pro- 
fessional educational costs in the amounts of $400,000 for the 
Amherst campus and $155,000 for the Boston campus. Examples of

Trustees as part of the Mid-Year Review. 
(Doc. T84-119) 

The next matter for consideration was the establishment of 
the Facilities Design and Construction Trust Fund at the 
Worcester campus. Following a brief discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board establish the Facilities 
Design and Construction Trust Fund at the university 
of Massachusetts at Worcester which self-supporting 
trust fund shall have its purpose the provision of 
in-house design and construction services to the 
Medical Center; said trust fund to consist of fees

with interest at one-half the prime interest rate. 
All as more fully described in doc. T84-114. 

Chancellor Tranquada updated the Committee on the progress 
of the plans for the center for Health and Fitness . The pre- 
liminary estimate of the project cost for the renovations, to be 
financed by the Group practice Trust Fund, was $500,000. Actual

UM/Boston : Chancellor Corrigan; Provost Greene 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada 

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:10 p.m. 

The first item of business was the Award of Tenure a t the 
Amherst campus. After a brief discussion of the criteria for 
the award of tenure, it was moved and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the award of tenure to 
Kenneth A. Parker as Associate Professor of 
Education at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst. 

The next item discussed was the Annual Admissions and 
Financial Aid Report . In the course of the discussion, it was 
noted that there were definite changes particularly at the 
Boston and Amherst campuses. Representatives from the campuses 
were available to answer questions. 

In response to the decline in applications in the freshman 
class at UM/Boston, Chancellor Corrigan said some of the 
statistics were misleading. There was an extraordinary increase 
in graduate students from sixty headcount graduates in 1979 to 
over 1,000 which responds to the long range plan to increase the 
professional graduate programs. There was an increase in 
transfer students and the campus was pleased to see that 
increase. Basically, enrollments have held steady. What is 



A&SA 

11/28/84 

occurring is fewer traditional eighteen year old students 
applying directly to the campus and more community college and 
private college students applying to upper division or graduate 
students who are professional students. In response to the 
concern about the decline, the admissions office is redoubling 
and refining its efforts to reach out to the suburbs. Finally, 
in the absence of residences UM/Boston has great difficultly 
attracting traditional students, and there are still people who 
see Columbia point as an unsafe area. There is still a concern 
about the fall off in freshman enrollment but there has been 
increase in graduate and upper division enrollment and that is 
in keeping with the campus' long range plan. 

Chairman Troy said he was pleased with the development at 
the graduate level and with the transfer picture but the 
reputation, distinction of the faculty, and what the campus has 
to offer must be made known to the broad suburban area. 

At the Amherst campus, there was a increase in minority 
student attendance. It was pointed out that this was achieved 
through programs such as the Challenge program, providing 
additional support services, funding arrangements, and more 
direct recruitment with minority students. 

Chancellor Tranquada pointed out that in a recently received 
report from the AAMC, the national figures show a two percent 
increase in applicants to medical school which is a turnaround 
after ten years of gradual decline. Also, there are 74 first 
year residency positions on campus each year and so far this 
year 5300 applications for those positions have been received. 

President Knapp indicated that he would be forwarding to the 
Board copies of the recent report of the National Institute of 
Education on the Conditions of Excellence in American Higher 
Education and a commentary on the most recent National Endowment 
of the Humanities Report. The two reports are varied in their 
approaches to the problems of education but are raising issues 
which deserve consideration within the University. The 
recommendations in the report relate to academic policy of a 
very significant nature. Both reports put a high premium on the 
concept of liberal education. He said he will keep the 
Committee and Board of Trustees informed as to future happenings 
on the national scene. 

The last item for consideration was the Graduation Lists. 
Without discussion, it was moved, and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
September, 1984 Graduation Lists at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
(Doc. T84-001E), the December, 1984 Grad- 
uation Lists at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston (Doc. T84-001F) and the

UNI. 
REL. 

11/7/84 At t k e re q Ues t of Chairman Sweeney, President Knapp gave his 

perceptions of the university wide council and that he foresaw 
the council proceeding in two phases. First as an internal 
group and the second as a larger body which has a university- 
wide interest from an external point of view. The initial phase 
would look at the relationship between the campus efforts one to 
another and to the university as a whole. 

The campus representatives reported on the efforts of the 
campus councils. Trustee Knowles thought the kind of people who 
should be involved on the Council are the President of the 
Alumni Associations, the President of the Foundation, and alumni 
who have been involved in the fundraising activities. 

Chairman Sweeney noted that included in the Report of the 
Development Review Committee was provision for a working group 
which would meet three times a year to study joint ventures in- 
cluding an all-university publication, the review of legislative 
efforts, joint club ventures, fundraising techniques and an all 
university data bank. The Committee includes the three Alumni 
Association Presidents, the three Vice Presidents for university 
Relations and Development, and the three Directors of Alumni 
Relations and Activities. A discussion followed as to the feas- 
ibility of this occurring and Ruth Levens and Linda Manning 
Alumni Association Presidents from Amherst and Boston re- 
spectively indicated their full support. 

A special committee was appointed to report back to the Com- 
mittee in January with recommendations how the Amherst marching 
band might be more useful. Chairman Sweeney appointed Ruth 
Levens, Linda Manning and John Hite to the Committee. 

The discussion then focused on the role of the Foundation. 
It is presently perceived as a support agency to provide special 
vehicles that do not exist on the campuses. president Knapp 
summarized the recommendations included in the Three Year Plan 
for the university of Massachusetts Foundation which had been 
previously distributed to the Committee. Comments on the report 
from the Amherst campus were distributed and heard. 

Noting that there was a Trustee vacancy on the Foundation 
Board, it was agreed to request the Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees to name a replacement. 

The last item on the agenda, Campus Reports, was postponed 
until the January meeting. The meeting adjourned at 4:10 p.m.

look at alternative financing which may be available when 
dealing with the funding of the Multi-purpose Arena. Also 
introduced was Mr. Mike Halloran from the Boston E.F. Hutton

which is hoped to be the summer of 1985, it was moved, seconded 
and

have served with him. 

BE IT RESOLVED, THEREFORE, that George R. 
Baldwin be commended for his valuable 
service to the Board of Trustees and his 
deep commitment to the students and the 
mission of the University of Massachusetts. 

The next item was the GOVERNANCE SYSTEM at the Boston 
Campus. President Knapp gave tlie background of the governance 
structure at the Boston campus. Chancellor Corrigan said that 
because of the number of vacancies he chose not to seat the new 
assembly last spring and appointed a Governance Reform 

-2-

EXECUTIVE 
Committee to report back with a set of recommendations as to 11/19/84 
the future of governance on the Boston campus. The Committee 
fulfilled its mandate and and recommended a bicameral system. 
The recommendations included a smaller faculty council that 
will deal with those issues of primary faculty responsibility 
and a larger student senate that will deal with those issues of 
primary responsibility to students. The Committee recommended 
that the documents be submitted to referenda and the results 
were 

FACULTY COUNCIL 

Total Votes Cast * Yes No 

171 143 28 

(*Does not include invalid ballots: 13 faculty ballots were 
declared invalid because they were mailed without a validating 
faculty signature; 26 arrived after the referendum results had 
been tabulated. All 39 invalid ballots remain unopened.) 

STUDENT SENATE 

Total Votes Cast* Yes No 

1407 716 691 

C*Does not include 94 blank ballots. According to the Boston 
Election Department, blank votes occur in every election, as a 
result either of voter error or voter indecision.) 

Chancellor Corrigan pointed out two issues which raised 
concern among the students. The first was that instead of 
having a separate Student Activities Committee there would be a 
budget committee of the new Student Senate that would have the 
responsibility for making recommendations for expenditures of 
student fees and would come under the Student Senate. The 
second issue was a concern about the membership of the proposed 
Student Senate and whether it should include at-large seats. 

The students who expressed their views in opposition to the 
proposed Student Constitution and the timeliness of the 
dissemination of information necessary to vote on the referenda 
included Richard Bell, Kathleen Leehey and John McSweeney; 
students from the College of Public and Community Service and 
Trevor Clement who represented a Student Support Group at CPCS. 

Professor James Broderick, Chairman of the Committee on 
Governance Reform outlined the chronology of public meetings 
held by the Committee and the attendance at those forums. 



-3- 



EXECUTIVE Trustee Gomes, who basically endorsed the bicameral system, 
11/19/84 spoke of the few basic problems including the budget committee 
and the at-large seats but thought these could be worked out. 
After a discussion, a motion was made to table further 
consideration on the Goverance Proposals. This was defeated. 
A seconded motion to excluded from the motion the portion of 
the Student Constitution from the proposal was also defeated 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: ' To recommend that the Board establish the 
Faculty Council and the Student Senate at 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston; 
further, to approve the Constitution of 
the Faculty Council and the Constitution 
from the Student Senate as amended in the 
memorandum from the General Counsel of the 
University dated November 6, 1984; all as 
set forth in Doc. T84-118. 

Chairman Quinn asked for a motion to go into Executive 
Session to discuss the awarding of honorary degrees. It was 
moved, seconded, and 

VOTED: To go into Executive Session 

The time was 4:05 p.m. 

The Board came out of Executive Session and it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board award honorary 
degrees to those individuals agreed upon in 
executive session and to instruct the Chan- 
cellors to proceed with the necessary 
arranagements. 

The meeting adjourned at 5:05 p.m. .

Chairman Costin called the meeting to order at 12:05 p.m. 

The first item discussed was Current Trustee Policies. A 
review of those policies resulted in the draft resolution which 
clearly identified all categories of non-discrimination. 

The Committee reviewed in detail the Draft Affirmative 
Action Resolution . There was a lengthy discussion of what 
should be included in the Trustee Resolution. References to 
non-discrimination on the basis of sexual preference, political 
affiliation and membership or non-membership in political 
groups although not precluded are not legally required by state 
and federal law to be included. The resolution should be broad 
enough to take care of all concerns. After a discussion of the 
time frame for the the President's report to be submitted to 
the Trustees on various aspects of implementing the affirmative 
action program, the following changes in the resolution were 
agreed to by the Committee: 

To strike in paragraph 2, line six "quarterly" and insert 
^ N in its place "semi-annual". 



AA 
""V5/84 



and further, 

To strike in paragraph 2, line 14 "fully" and insert it 
after the word "implement" in line 15. 

The draft revision of the Affirmative Action Resolution was 
then tabled until the next meeting of the Committee. 

The next items on the agenda discussed were Review of 
Campus and President's Reports and Review of Campus 
Quaterly/ Annual Reports. It was noted that in the Worcester 
report on page 3~ under goals item 2 was new "To adopt positive 
and aggressive measures to redress the effects of past 
discrimination and to adopt practices designed to address the 
existance of underrepresentation in all areas."

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. 

The first matter for consideration related to reconsidera- 
tion of the minutes of prior meetings of the Board. It was 
then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To reconsider the action taken at the October 3 
meeting relating to Executive Compensation. 

After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To amend the Board vote of October 3, 1984 on Exe- 
cutive Compensation by striking the words "$92,500 
effective January 1, 1984" in paragraph 1 and sub- 
stituting therefor the words "$90,000 effective 
July 1, 1983;" further, to delete Section 2 of said 
vote which begins with the words 



I 



Bar "Effective September, 1984," and ends with the words "to a 

12/5/84 maximum of four years," this deletion will be considered at 

a future date; and further, to ask the Chairman to write a 
letter to the Board of Regents explaining this action. 

The Board then considered and approved the Minutes of the 
September 12 and October 3, 1984 meetings. It was moved, sec- 
onded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the September 12 and 
October 3, 1984 Board of Trustees meetings. 

Chairman Quinn noted the recent victories of both the Am- 
herst and Boston football teams and expressed his congratula- 
tions. 

President Knapp briefly commented on the report Involvement 
in Learning sponsored by the National Institute of Education 
which is the first of five reports to be circulated within the 
months related to undergraduate education. He said the matters 
under discussion were primarily faculty responsibility and 
several of the recommendations in the report have been under 
consideration on the campus for the past several years. 

He informed the Trustees that the Board of Regents had made 
budget recommendations to the Secretary of Administration and 
Finance. Although no conclusive decision had been reached, 
there was every indication that it would be a relatively tight 
budget year for not only higher education but much of state 
government . 

Chancellor Duffey informed the Trustees that the December 
issue of Esquire magazine listed a number of americans who are 
described as men and women who are changing America. Three 
graduates of the Amherst campus in the 1970's were listed in 
that gathering of names. Last month the campus held the first 
research review with industry in the Department of COINS and 
Electrical and Computer Engineering . The meeting had 131 
participants from Corporations across the country including GE, 
Raytheon, MIT, Lincoln Labs, and Data General. 

He announced that the campus had recently received grants 
from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the 
Rockerfeller Foundation, and the Ford Foundation for the next 
stages of editing and publication of the papers of Elizabeth 
K.E. Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Also, the School of Educa- 
tion on the Amherst campus has been invited to assist the 
African Country of Tanzania in educational development and re- 
ceived funds to establish and equip training Centers in 
Tanzania for secondary school teachers and to train peace corp 
volun- teers to teach math, chemistry physics and engineering. 



-2- 



Finally, the campus was the site this fall for an informal BOT 
series of seminars for faculty and graduate students entitled 12/5/84 
f the Chancellor's Seminars on the New American Economy. Guest 

speakers brought to the campus as part of the series included 
former Governor Gerry Brown of California and Peter Goldmark, 
Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The 
seminars which will continue in the spring provide the oppor- 
tunity for guests to speak on subjects including entrepre- 
neuralizm, the flow of capital and the international competi- 
tive situation of U.S. Industry. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported that the Boston campus had an 
extraordinary increase in graduate enrollment last year. From 
the fall of 1983 to the fall of 1984 graduate enrollment in- 
creased by approximately 50% which is in keeping with the Long 
Range Plan to change the mix of students to eventually be ap- 
proximately 10% graduate and 90% undergraduate. He announced 
that legislation had been signed and three million dollars 
appropriated for support of the McCormack Institute for Public 
Affairs. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that the recent fire on the 
7th floor of Student Laboratory Wing had been contained in the 
Laboratory and there were no serious injuries related to it. 
The cost of fire damage within the building was estimated at 
$100,000 to $200,000. 

Chancellor Tranquada announced that David Drachman, Chair- 
man of the Department of Neurology was designated as Director 
of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, one of five identi- 
fied in the Country. Also, the Department of Medicine was 
recently awarded in excess of four million dollars from the 
National Cancer Institute and the National Lung and Blood In- 
stitute to fund projects to study ways doctors can help pa- 
tients to kick the smoking habit and how young people's diets 
affect their blood pressure. 

Several members of the campus are to be honored by the 
Governor. Among them are a group of nurses, from the Emergency 
Room who call themselves CARE standing for Cancel Alcohol Re- 
lated Emergencies, who have been lecturing to high school stu- 
dents over the Commonwealth and neighboring states on the ha- 
zards of mixing Alcohol and driving. He said its been an im- 
mensely effective program. 

The next item was Reports of the Standing Committees. 
There being no objection, item C3 Governance Proposals - 
Student Senate and Faculty Council at Boston was then 
discussed. Chair- man Quinn stated the Executive Committee 
after hearing from members of the student group, others, and 
administration rec- ommended the adoption of the proposed 
Governance Structure.

-3- 



BOT Chancellor Corrigan reviewed the history of governance at 

12/5/84 the Boston campus and said there was a review process which 
resulted in the new proposal recommended by the Governance 
Reform Committee. The proposal, a bicameral system, would 
consist of a faculty council and a larger student senate. The 
two constitutions were subjected to referenda, and in the case 
of faculty council there was an overwhelming vote of approval. 
The student constitution for two reasons was a more controver- 
sial document and the referenda passed the constitution by a 
margin of 25 votes. The issues of concern were whether there 
should be at-large seats in the student senate and whether the 
size of the proposed budget committee was large enough. 

Trustee Gomes said students were upset and there was a 
feeling of disenf ranchisement particularly on the part of CPCS 
students who feel they are being ignored and excluded in de- 
cisions. He also said there was a problem with incorporating 
the General Counsel's opinions in the proposed document. He 
would like to have students understand how the changes alter 
the proposed package and asked the Board to refer the matter 
back to the Committee to incorporate General Counsel's advice 
and to resolve other discrepancies. 

Students and Faculty who spoke in opposition to recom- 
mitting the matter to the Executive Committee and in favor of 
the proposed constitution were Brian McDevitt, student from the 
College of Management; Suzzette Bernard, student; James 
Broderick, Chairman of the Reform Committee; Betsy Meisner, 
student; George Goodwin, faculty member; Thomas Lord, student; 
Diane Lewinsky, student; and Paul Watanabe, faculty member. 
Students who endorsed the motion to recommit the matter were 
David Burns, student; Bob George, Chairman of the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee and member of the Reform Committee; Richard 
Bell, CPCS student; and Trevor Clement, student 

After discussion it was then moved, seconded 

VOTED: To recommit the matter of the Student Senate Con- 
stitution to the Executive Committee for further 
consideration; further, to establish the Faculty 
Council at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston and to approve the Constitution of said 
Counsel as amended in the memorandum from the 
General Council of the University dated November 6, 
1984, all as set forth in Doc. T84-118. 

Trustee Troy then gave the report of the Committee on Aca- 
demic and Student Affairs. The first item was a recommendation 
for the Award of Tenure at Amherst. The Committee reviewed the 
criteria for tenure and briefly discussed the need for greater

(Doc. T84-120) 

Trustee Troy then underscored a few of the most important 
points which emerged from the Committee's discussion of the 
Annual Admission and Financial Aid Report . First, while Am- 
herst and Worcester saw increases in the applications of quali- 
fied students, there was a decline at Boston. Chancellor 
Corrigan pointed out to the Committee that dispite the decline 
of freshman applicants there was an increase in the area of 
graduate studies and among transfer applicants so that the 
overall student population had remained stable. A number of 
reasons for the decline were discussed such as the absence of 
residence halls, the perception of the campus site near Colum- 
bia Point as being unsafe, and the demographic decline in the 
18 year old group. The problem is a complicated one and the 
campus is attempting to address it on a number of fronts par- 
ticularly moving out into the high schools of suburban Boston 
and attempting to make the offerings better known. 

He informed the Trustees that at both Boston and Amherst 
SAT Scores have improved and are above the national average. 
At Amherst there was an increase from a combined score of 990 
in 1983 to 997 in 1984. The national average is 897. At 
Boston the score went from 913 in 1983 to 925 in 1984. The 
Amherst campus still faces the problems of access majors in 
certain courses such as management, computer science, 
engineering, and hotel and restaurant studies. 

He said the financial aid picture was somewhat mixed. An 
increase in state funds for scholarship and the increase in 
tuition waivers have proved helpful but the decline in federal 
funds and Pell grants creates a problem for many students on 
all the campuses. Fifty-eight percent of all student aid is in 
the form of loans, thirty-one percent is in the form of grants, 
and eleven percent is in the form of college work study 
programs. Many families and students still must bear a burden 
in seeking a university education. He said a new scholarship 
program for academically talented students has been created. 
The money comes from the Alumni Association plus funds from 
forfeited admissions deposits, approximately $60,000. These 
scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit although in 
nearly every case it also involves need. 

He concluded his report with the recommendation that the 
Board approve the Graduation Lists . Without further dis- 
cussion, it was moved, seconded and

onded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the September 12 and 
October 3, 1984 Board of Trustees meetings. 

Chairman Quinn noted the recent victories of both the Am- 
herst and Boston football teams and expressed his congratula- 
tions. 

President Knapp briefly commented on the report Involvement 
in Learning sponsored by the National Institute of Education 
which is the first of five reports to be circulated within the 
months related to undergraduate education. He said the matters 
under discussion were primarily faculty responsibility and 
several of the recommendations in the report have been under 
consideration on the campus for the past several years. 

He informed the Trustees that the Board of Regents had made 
budget recommendations to the Secretary of Administration and 
Finance. Although no conclusive decision had been reached, 
there was every indication that it would be a relatively tight 
budget year for not only higher education but much of state 
government . 

Chancellor Duffey informed the Trustees that the December 
issue of Esquire magazine listed a number of americans who are 
described as men and women who are changing America. Three 
graduates of the Amherst campus in the 1970's were listed in 
that gathering of names. Last month the campus held the first 
research review with industry in the Department of COINS and 
Electrical and Computer Engineering . The meeting had 131 
participants from Corporations across the country including GE, 
Raytheon, MIT, Lincoln Labs, and Data General. 

He announced that the campus had recently received grants 
from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the 
Rockerfeller Foundation, and the Ford Foundation for the next 
stages of editing and publication of the papers of Elizabeth 
K.E. Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Also, the School of Educa- 
tion on the Amherst campus has been invited to assist the 
African Country of Tanzania in educational development and re- 
ceived funds to establish and equip training Centers in 
Tanzania for secondary school teachers and to train peace corp 
volun- teers to teach math, chemistry physics and engineering.

Finally, the campus was the site this fall for an informal 
series of seminars for faculty and graduate students entitled 
the Chancellor's Seminars on the New American Economy. Guest 
speakers brought to the campus as part of the series included 
former Governor Gerry Brown of California and Peter Goldmark, 
Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The 
seminars which will continue in the spring provide the oppor- 
tunity for guests to speak on subjects including entrepre- 
neuralizm, the flow of capital and the international competi- 
tive situation of U.S. Industry. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported that the Boston campus had an 
extraordinary increase in graduate enrollment last year. From 
the fall of 1983 to the fall of 1984 graduate enrollment in- 
creased by approximately 50% which is in keeping with the Long 
Range Plan to change the mix of students to eventually be ap- 
proximately 10% graduate and 90% undergraduate. He announced 
that legislation had been signed and three million dollars 
appropriated for support of the McCormack Institute for Public 
Affairs.

Chancellor Tranquada reported that the recent fire on the 
7th floor of Student Laboratory Wing had been contained in the 
Laboratory and there were no serious injuries related to it. 
The cost of fire damage within the building was estimated at 
$100,000 to $200,000. 

Chancellor Tranquada announced that David Drachman, Chair- 
man of the Department of Neurology was designated as Director 
of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, one of five identi- 
fied in the Country. Also, the Department of Medicine was 
recently awarded in excess of four million dollars from the 
National Cancer Institute and the National Lung and Blood In- 
stitute to fund projects to study ways doctors can help pa- 
tients to kick the smoking habit and how young people's diets 
affect their blood pressure. 

Several members of the campus are to be honored by the 
Governor. Among them are a group of nurses, from the Emergency 
Room who call themselves CARE standing for Cancel Alcohol Re- 
lated Emergencies, who have been lecturing to high school stu- 
dents over the Commonwealth and neighboring states on the ha- 
zards of mixing Alcohol and driving. He said its been an im- 
mensely effective program. 

The next item was Reports of the Standing Committees. 
There being no objection, item C3 Governance Proposals - 
Student Senate and Faculty Council at Boston was then 
discussed. Chair- man Quinn stated the Executive Committee 
after hearing from members of the student group, others, and 
administration rec- ommended the adoption of the proposed 
Governance Structure.

Trustee Gomes said students were upset and there was a

students who feel they are being ignored and excluded in de- 
cisions. He also said there was a problem with incorporating 
the General Counsel's opinions in the proposed document. He 
would like to have students understand how the changes alter 
the proposed package and asked the Board to refer the matter 
back to the Committee to incorporate General Counsel's advice 
and to resolve other discrepancies.
